Downtown Atlanta’s Food Truck Fridays Returns

With New 2018 Location

Find the city’s best street eats in Woodruff Park each Friday this summer

ATLANTA (April 25, 2018) – Downtown’s popular Food Truck Fridays series returns, this year to a new location. Each Friday from May 4 – July 27, a lineup of food truck vendors serving some of the city’s best street eats will set up at Woodruff Park along Peachtree Street, between Poplar and Luckie Streets, for an extra special lunchtime event.

Formerly located at Broad Street Plaza at Five Points MARTA rail station, Food Truck Fridays is being relocated to complement the highly successful lunchtime activity the park experiences during peak outdoor dining season.

The festivities will be accompanied by live music from local performers, and café seating with umbrellas will be available throughout the Park. The lineup of summer vendors includes popular trucks like Big C’s Chicago Kitchen, Cousins Maine Lobster, South of Philly, The Tempted Palate, and Yumbii.

Savor warm weather and a rotating selection of lunch options, from lobster rolls to poke bowls—and don’t forget to bring a friend.

Event Details:

  • Dates and Times: Fridays, May 4 through July 27, from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.*
  • Location: Peachtree Street, adjacent to Woodruff Park, between Poplar and Luckie Streets
  • Cost: Varies based on vendor.

* Program cancellation is subject to rain, extreme weather, or Park closures.
