Missed It: Dumpling Festival

FestivalBuzz laments the late reporting of the NYC Dumpling Festival. Featuring our favorite type of on-the-go food, it will be added to our calendar and duly reported with plenty of notice for next year.

New York Film Festival

Hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, this uptown stalwart finishes out the second half of the year, complimenting the Tribeca Film Festival more market-minded fare. Look for famous European masters as well as some more mainstream fare making its debut here (THE SOCIAL NETWORK and HEREAFTER open and close the festival, respectively). Wish we had an all access pass. Go see something that WON'T likely be coming to a theater near you anytime soon.

When: Friday September 24- October 10, 2010
Where: Lincoln Center

Atlantic Antic Street Fair

The great Atlantic Antic Street Fair will take place Sunday, September 26 from 10AM-6PM. As with the Atlantic Ave Art Walk, the street fair reaches epic proportions as New Yorkers from all over the place head to what is billed as the largest street fair in the city. Perhaps San Gennaro in Little Italy feels more crowded, but the Antic packs in more people.

A walk down Atlantic Ave brings experiences as varied as any part of the city. From the delicious Middle Eastern treats to the accessible art galleries, to boutique bakeries and awesome bars, Atlantic Avenue has truly transformed into an experience. The Antic brings vendors of all ilks as well as performers on 10 different stages. If you've been looking for an excuse to discover Atlantic Ave, come on down.

When: September 26 10AM-4PM rain or shine
Where: Atlantic Avenue from Hicks Street to 4th Avenue in Brooklyn
