The Candler Park Fall Fest takes place every fall in late September or early October in Candler Park (585 Candler Park Drive NE). A short walk from Candler Park MARTA station, the festival includes a 5K, music/entertainment and an artist market.

MARTA Directions

The Edgewood/Candler Park station is on the blue and green rail line that runs east and west through the city. If your starting station is on the red or gold line, transfer at Five Points to the eastbound platform and get on a train labeled “Candler Park” or “Indian Creek.”

After exiting the fare gate, follow the exit marked North Parking. At street level walk east (away from the stoplight) on Dekalb Avenue and turn left on Mell Avenue. This street dead ends at the park. Total walking time is about 8 minutes. As an alternate, you can also walk to the stoplight near the MARTA station and turn right on Oakdale Road then right again on McLendon Avenue.

Helpful Tips

  • Weekend trains are every 20 minutes. Use the MARTA on the Go app for real-time arrivals.
  • The PATH bike trail travels next to the park as another transit option.
  • If you are commuting from Midtown, Poncey Highland or Little 5 Points, board bus 102 at the North Avenue MARTA station or along Ponce de Leon, N. Highland or Moreland Avenue to get to the Candler Park station.
