Come out for the East Atlanta Strut! This iconic and oh-so-quirky street festival is back for just one day — and it’s happening on September 24, 2022.
This is a porchfest-style party that’s spread out across the whole neighborhood — about 16 square miles.
There will be four designated activity hubs, and you can ride a FREE shuttle between them — or walk or bike (bicycles will be available to rent!)
Admission is FREE — but if you want to stroll with an open container, you’ll need a $5 wristband that proves you’re old enough to drink legally. You will NOT be able to carry alcohol with you unless you have a wristband — available for purchase on site.
The day kicks off with a pre-pawty pet parade.
After that, you can browse the street market, where you’ll find over local vendors selling their wares; listen to music by local artists; and enjoy snacks from food trucks or the local East Atlanta restaurants.
There is also a free kids area — in previous years, it had activities like giant board games, bounce houses, face painting, jousting with pool noodles, and NERF tag.
According to the event’s Facebook page, you can also play Llama Poop Bingo with llamas from Southeast Llama Rescue, join a Hamster Ball Race, or get a closeup view of the new Fire Station 13 truck.
This is a rain-or-shine event. No pets, please!

Remember, this is East Atlanta — where parking is limited. Please plan to use a park-and-ride lot, located at Eastside Church, Temple of Faith Church, and First Iconium Church. Then look for the shuttle stop and hop on a bus!
