The 19th annual Little Five Points Halloween Festival takes place on Saturday, October 19th, 2019. Festival hours are noon to 10 p.m., with a parade at 4 p.m.
Admission to the festival, live entertainment, and parade is FREE.
There will be a small artists market along Euclid Avenue that day, and the L5P restaurants welcome your business.
The parade route starts at Austin and Euclid Avenues and moves up Euclid to Moreland. It will turn south on Moreland and proceed to the Wrecking Bar Brewpub, where it will do a u-turn and then proceed to Freedom Parkway.
No pets are allowed on the festival grounds, per Atlanta city ordinance.

Getting there and parking
Parking around the L5P area is always a challenge, even on the best of days. With several streets closed to cars for the festival, it’s a good idea to leave the car at home. Walk, bike, scooter, ride MARTA, or take a rideshare service.
Coming from the suburbs? One option we’ve used in the past is to park at the Carter Presidential Library and walk to Little Five Points, using the walking route option in the Google Maps app.
The closest MARTA station is Inman Park / Reynoldstown, on the blue/green (east/west) line.
According to the event’s website, buses won’t be running from the station to L5P, so you’ll need to make the 15-minute walk to L5P or rent a Relay Bike or electric scooter at the station.
Walking directions from Inman Park Station to L5P:
- Exit the station, following the signs pointing to Inman Park.
- Turn left on Dekalb Avenue
- Turn left onto the ramp down to Moreland Avenue
- Turn left on Euclid Avenue
Alternatively, you could use the PATH trail through Inman Park (the actual park). To do this:
- Exit the station parking lot and turn left on Poplar Circle. The street becomes a Path sidewalk through the park — it will have a painted stripe down the middle.
- Turn right on Euclid Avenue, which is the first street intersection.
- Walk a few blocks to reach L5P.
NOTE: Google Maps now provides the best scooter route along with walking directions.
