37th Annual Flatbush Frolic

Sep 15, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

| Free

The 37th annual Flatbush Frolic street fair on Cortelyou Road in Ditmas Park is coming! More than socks and sausages. There will be live bands, hundreds of food, merchandise and arts and crafts vendors exhibiting their wares — including an emphasis on local restaurants, musicians, businesses and artists — and games for the kids at this country fair on Cortelyou Road in the heart of Victorian Flatbush.

This year’s main stage music will include performances by DECOSTER, The Encounters, Omni Ensemble, Stanley John Mitchell, Nonlee High Teen Boogie, Jason Yeager, Jeanine Truly with Jumping Jazz, Grey Sky Appeal, Dirty Mike & The Boize, Roopa, Khel and Catahoula Cajun Band. In addition to music, we are proud to feature dance and movement performances by Latin Fever Dance Studio, Cynthia Dance Studio, Midwood
Martial Arts, and Namaste Yoga.

Unique to the Flatbush Frolic is the “Just For Kids” area at the Tot Lot Playground, hosted by Midwood Martial Arts. Children and their parents will be entertained by Sparkle the Fairy Princess, experience hands on science experiments with Kiddie Science, sing along with Musical Explorers, and watch Nathan Thompson’s amazing magic show. Expectant parents can learn about HypnoBirthing with Sara Kramer of Gentle Birthing New York and Baby Be Safe will demonstrate First Aid and CPR. FDC’s after school program will host fun craft projects, and all children can participate in kids’ karate, gymnastics and yoga mini-classes with Midwood Martial Arts Instructors. Best of all, these interactive sessions are all FREE!

Be sure to visit the FDNY’s Mobile Fire Safety Experience, or “Smoke House” trailer. Children and adults have a chance to enter the Smoke House – which is filled with artificial smoke – and practice fire evacuation
techniques. Donate your used eyeglasses to Grace Eye Care, who will be out collecting on behalf of Glasses for Haiti. Additionally, P.S. 139 P.A. invites you to compete against the Chess Ninjas, 2012 National Chess Champions, and don’t forget to check out the non-for-profit area featuring information about all of the programs that FDC and other local organizations have to offer.

Local business are coming out to share their wears, talents, food, and drinks, so come see what Cortelyou Road is famous for. Join San Remo’s pizza eating contest, check out Brooklyn Artery’s arts and crafts exhibitions, pick up medical brochures offered by Greenfield Pharmacy, drink at the Cortelyou Beer and Wine Garden (hosted by Sycamore, Bar 773 and Costello Plan), and visit our local vendors, including The Farm on Adderley, Bar Chord, Coffee Mob, Flatbush Food Coop, Connecticut Muffin, and Purple Yam.
