The Festival on Ponce is held in the spring and fall and features an artist market, live music, children’s area and food trucks in a series of parks along Ponce de Leon Avenue. The event is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and volunteer artists to benefit the local community.
Here are your commute options on transit:
For a pleasant neighborhood bike ride on a tree-lined street or 20-minute walk, head to the Candler Park MARTA station and the blue rail line. Follow the signs pointing to Candler Park to exit the station, and at street level walk/ride straight ahead through the parking lot toward the nearby stoplight, which is Oakdale Road. Turn right on Oakdale and take it all the way to the festival, about 4 blocks away (see map).
Hungry? Three brunch/lunch restaurants are on the route: Flying Biscuit Cafe, Gato and Radial Cafe. Use Dekalb Avenue next to the station instead of Oakdale Road, walking east away from downtown to reach Radial, or continue on to Clifton Road and turn left.
MARTA + Uber
Uber is also a good option. Request a car at the Candler Park station on the blue line or North Avenue on the red/gold line. Use promo code MARTAGuide to get $20 off your first ride.
