Atlanta Street Food Festival - July 14

The food truck trend just keeps getting bigger. When my suburban dad obsessed, you know the trend has gone mainstream. You can join in the fun and  celebrate Atlanta's wealth of street food at the first ever Atlanta Street Food Festival at Piedmont Park on Saturday, July 14.

The event takes place from noon to 8:30 p.m and will include not only food but also wares from local merchants and artisans and live entertainment provided by sponsor Lethal Rhythms Entertainment (Dwight Raby, The Stephen Lee Band, Josh Bias & the 630 Band, Southland Romeo and Timothy J. Wilson). In addition, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank. 

“Our goal is to bring the city together for an affordable, family-friendly event that really highlights our diverse culinary offerings, including the beloved food trucks and the amazing artistic talent of our local artisans and merchants,” Atlanta Street Food Festival founders Alisha Nesbitt and Cheryl Hasting said.   

Participating food trucks and caterers include: Yumbii, Munch, Banged Up and Mashed, Just Loaf’n, Yoli’s Street Food, Mix’d Up, Hail Caesar, The Fry Guy, Pup Truck, Happy Belly, Yum Yum Cupcake, Nana G’s Chik-n-Waffles, Buon Provecho, Black Tie Catering, King of Pops, Honeysuckle Gelato, Dr. Sweet’s Cake Emporium and Cake CafĂ© Atlanta. Wash it down with event partner SweetWater's brews or water from another sponsor, Vitamin Water.
