The Candler Park Music and Food Festival is a yearly event featuring music performances, food trucks and a 5K. General admission tickets start at $20 or upgrade to VIP. Both options provide access over two days.

The closest station to the festival is the Candler Park MARTA Station on the blue/green rail line that runs east and west through the city. 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.

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.
