In 2022, Food-O-Rama returns to Grant Park. It is scheduled for Saturday, April 16th, from noon to 8 p.m., rain or shine.
This food truck extravaganza will include 50 of the best food trucks from all over the region, including a special Vegan Alley.
You can also enjoy craft beers, specialty cocktails, local arts and crafts vendors, and live music.
The event is FREE to attend — just bring your wallet and a valid ID if you want to eat and drink.

As with all public festivals in Atlanta, alternate transportation is recommended because parking is limited. Uber or Lyft are good ideas. So is biking, or walking in on the Beltline.
The closest MARTA station to Grant Park is the King Memorial Station, on the blue and green rail lines.
According to MARTA, you should plan for a 17-minute walk to the edge of the park and another 20 to walk the length of the park itself. The MARTA Guide also recommends renting a Relay Bike at the King Memorial Station to get to Grant Park without a long walk. Taking a bus from the station is another option.
