Grant Park Food Truck Festival
If you don’t love a good food truck, you don’t know what you’re missing, and if you know, you know. The Grant Park festival, called the Food-O-Rama Food Truck Festival, is a great opportunity for food truck enthusiasts and the newly curious alike to explore a world of enticing and exciting epicurean delights. This year’s festival is on Saturday, September 3, in Grant Park from noon to 8 PM, and we’d love to see you there.
Get It While It’s Hot
This foodie extravaganza will host 50 of the most popular food trucks across the region, and there’s even a Vegan Alley for all you vegans – and aspiring vegans – out there. The food truck blowout, however, does not end with fulfilling your wildest food dreams – there are also craft beers on tap, special cocktails, live music, local arts and craft vendors, and much more. The festivities are free to attend, but you’ll need your wallet and a valid ID if you plan on partaking. If you are at least 21 and plan on enjoying a tall one (or any other alcoholic beverage), you’ll need to purchase a $10 wristband (that will score you a free beer token).
Grant Park in downtown Atlanta was gifted to the city in 1883, and it remains a gift to its 2 million visitors each year. The oldest park in the city, Grant Park is an imposing 131 acres of public green space that is located at 800 Cherokee Ave – just south of Oakland Cemetery. If you’re headed to the Food-O-Rama, alternate transportation is naturally recommended – and encouraged. Atlanta sees more than its fair share of traffic, which makes all the following options viable choices:
- Hailing a rideshare
- Walking in on the Beltline
- Taking Marta to King Memorial Station on the blue and green rail lines
The walk from King Memorial Station is about 17 minutes, and it takes about 20 to traverse Grant Park itself. If you want to skip the walk over, Relay Bikes are available for rental at the station, and there is also a bus that will drop you at your destination.
