The Candler Park Music and Food Festival is a yearly event featuring music performances, food trucks and a 5K. General admission or VIP tickets are required for entry and are good for both Friday and Saturday.
- Take a blue or green line train to the Candler Park MARTA Station (green line only runs on weekdays for limited hours). If you are traveling from the red or gold line, transfer at Five Points to the eastbound platform and get on a train labeled “Indian Creek” or “Candler Park”.
- After exiting the fare gate at the station, follow the signs pointing to North Parking.
- At street level, head west on Dekalb Avenue toward the stoplight and turn right on Oakdale Road and right on McClendon Avenue. Or walk in the opposite direction an turn left on Mell Avenue.
Trains operate every 20 minutes on the weekend and on weekdays after 8:30 p.m. Use the MARTA on the Go app for real-time train arrivals to avoid long waits on the train platform.
If you’d rather bike to the event, the PATH Stone Mountain trail connects with the park. The protected bike trail starts at Boulevard at Freedom Parkway near downtown and travels to Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park and Candler Park (with a BeltLine connection near King of Pops/Skate Park). A portion of the trail is also next to the East Lake and Decatur MARTA stations. Bike valet available at the festival.
