 About Atlanta Food Festival:

Get a delicious taste of the city at the Atlanta Food Festival, which features some of the best restaurants, food trucks and caterers converging on Jim Miller Park for an eating extravaganza. Once you've got your fill, take a break in the fun zone, with rock climbing walls, bounce houses and other inflatables.  

It's a great way to spend the Fourth of July weekend with the whole family -- sampling new dishes, checking out live music and letting the little ones try their hand at a variety of games and activities. All children 13 and younger may enter the fest free when accompanied by a paid adult.

Proceeds benefit the Inside Out Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization supporting the jobless and working poor.
