Chomp and Stomp is annual chili cook-off and festival in Cabbagetown in between the Inman Park and King Memorial MARTA stations. In addition to plenty of chili tasting, enjoy live bluegrass music or run the 5K. There are several ways to get to the festival on transit, which is highly recommended due to limited parking. See below for your options.
For the most pleasant walk or bike experience from MARTA, use the Inman Park MARTA station. Walking time is 17 minutes to the festival entrance (biking time approximately six minutes). Only blue line trains travel to Inman Park on the weekend, which means transferring to an eastbound “Indian Creek” train at Five Points if you are traveling from the red or gold line.
At the Inman Park station, keep right after exiting the fare gates and follow the signs pointing to Inman Park. At street level walk straight ahead through the bus bay and cross over the street to reach Edgewood Avenue. Walk about three blocks on Edgewood to Krog Street and turn left (see walking map).
The BeltLine Eastside Trail current ends at Irwin Street in Old Fourth Ward. From the trail end, turn left on Irwin then a quick right on Krog Street next to the Krog Street Market and bike for about two blocks, going through the Krog Tunnel.
Bus 21 travels to Cabbagetown from the King Memorial MARTA station about every 30 minutes. It is free to transfer to the bus from the train with a Breeze Card. The bus travels on Memorial Drive — signal to exit after the bus crosses over Boulevard (there’s a stoplight). Walk north on Berean Street away from the church, then right on Gaskill and left on Tye. Use extra caution when crossing over Memorial Drive. View the next real-time bus arrival at King Memorial (bus travel toward Kensington).
