The BeltLine Boil is an annual Low Country boil competition and fundraiser in the Fourth Ward Skate Park. In addition to food tastings, the $10 admission fee includes live music and local vendor marketplace with proceeds supporting Atlanta parks and the installation of lights along the trail.
As the name suggestions, the event is just off the BeltLine, which is the easiest commute option to the event. See below for all car-free commute options.
The Eastside BeltLine trail stretches from approximately Cabbagetown to Ansley Mall (access behind the Publix on Monroe Drive). If you live in a nearby area, biking to the BeltLine is a great option. Some of the popular access points include:
- 10th Street and Monroe Drive next to Piedmont Park
- Ponce de Leon via the Kroger parking lot
- Inman Park via Elizabeth Street in the Inman Park Village
- Off Irwin Street near the Irwin Street Market
- PATH trail, which stretches from downtown to Stone Mountain and connects with the BeltLine near the Carter Center
Don’t forget! You can take your bike on MARTA (recommended for this commute) or walk from the Inman Park MARTA station to reach the BeltLine Boil. If your starting station is on the red or gold line, transfer at the Five Points MARTA station to an eastbound train marked ‘Indian Creek.’ Once at Inman Park, keep right after exiting the fare gates and go down to street level (the Inman Park side of the station). Walk straight through the bus bay to enter Edgewood Avenue and continue for about a block to Elizabeth Street and turn right. Walk another three blocks to reach the BeltLine trail and walk under the overpass to reach the skate park. Approximate walking time is 17 minutes.
Bus 16 travels closest to the event. Get on the bus at the Five Points MARTA station, on Ralph McGill Blvd., N. Highland Avenue or Briarcliff north of Clifton Road. Exit the bus at Willoughby Way, which is the intersection near Glen Iris and next to the Amli Parkside apartments. Walk about five minutes on Willoughway Way to reach the Fourth Ward Skate Park (view map).
