We now have the parade route map and details on the post-parade concert and celebration.
The Braves won the World Series and the city is ready to celebrate with a victory parade!
The Atlanta Braves have announced a World Series championship parade this Friday, November 5th, to celebrate their win in Game 6 on Tuesday night.
“We interrupt this celebration to let you know that WE ARE HAVING A PARADE ON FRIDAY!!!” the Braves tweeted, not long after beating the Houston Astros in a 7-0 shutout.
But there’s more!
A post-parade celebration will feature a FREE concert with Atlanta natives and Grammy Award-winning artists, Ludacris and Big Boi inside Truist Park. You’ll need to reserve your free ticket as soon as they become available. DETAILS BELOW!
The World Series Victory Parade Route
The parade route will include both Atlanta and Cobb County.
The parade will begin at noon, downtown, near Centennial Olympic Park, at the corner of Peachtree Street and Marietta Street.
Then it will continue north on Peachtree Street, turning west on 10th Street to make its way to I-75.
From there, the parade will have a police escort up the interstate to Cobb County.
Then, according to a press release, the second phase of the parade will continue through Cobb County on Cobb Parkway, beginning at the corner of Riverwood Parkway and culminating at Circle 75 Parkway. From there, the Braves will head to Truist Park. (See the parade map route below.)
The post-parade concert at Truist Park is FREE too!
The Atlanta Braves will host a post-parade team celebration and concert inside Truist Park — featuring Ludacris and Big Boi!
Tickets are FREE and will become available to the public at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021. You can reserve tickets and parking passes at www.Braves.com/parade. Pre-purchasing your parking pass is highly recommended.
If you’re an A-List member or a Braves Insider, you get early access — you can log in to reserve tickets at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. respectively.
To ensure the safety of all guests, The Battery Atlanta will have limited capacity on Friday, November 5, during the celebration.
You’re encouraged to arrive early — even early enough to watch the parade on the giant screen inside Truist Park. From the press release:
“Braves Country is invited to line the parade route to cheer on their World Series Champion Atlanta Braves. Fans can also watch the parade and join the post-parade celebration and concert with Atlanta natives and Grammy Award-winning artists, Ludacris and Big Boi inside Truist Park.”
If you show up without a ticket, you may or may not be allowed inside Truist Park. We’re told that access for non-ticket holders will be granted on a first come, first served basis, as space allows.
Where to watch live coverage of the parade
If you’re going to be at home on Friday afternoon, we suspect that most of our local channels will offer live coverage of the parade — and perhaps the concert at Truist Park as well.
You can also watch on TV on the MLB Network, if you have access to it.
Where to stream the parade:
Best places to watch the World Series Parade in person
If you reserve a free ticket, you can watch on a huge screen inside Truist Park! The details are in the section above.
Of course, the public is invited to line the downtown parade route, to cheer on our World Series Champions, the Atlanta Braves.
Atlanta Police said in a news conference on Wednesday that they will prepare for one million people to attend the downtown parade.
You know what that means, right?
If you don’t know how to ride the MARTA train downtown, now is a good time to learn. Think of it as an adventure. You could take a ride share service to your nearest MARTA Station, or drive there and park. Keep in mind that MARTA parking lots can fill up on weekdays, as commuters leave their cars there.
Since the parade is expected to start at Centennial Olympic Park, you could ride the train to that general area, getting off at Peachtree Center Station. MARTA has a really great, detailed guide explaining how to MARTA to Centennial Olympic Park.
You could also exit at the North Avenue Station and walk to Peachtree Street.
If you exit the train at Midtown Station, that puts you right at 10th and Peachtree, which is where the parade is expected to turn and head west on 10th Street.
Another option: Ride to Arts Center Station, exit, and walk south on Peachtree Street to 10th Street.
We’ve found that the Google Maps app does a great job of giving directions when you need to take MARTA and then walk. The MARTA app is also very useful. And if you want to plan your strategy, MARTA has an interactive map that includes streets.
We also have to assume that the parade will be televised live (WSB-TV Channel 2 is great at that stuff!) and maybe even streamed live. If we find out where you can stream it or watch on TV, we will let you know.
