MARTA is celebrating 40 years on Sunday, November 3 at the Avondale Yard next to the Avondale MARTA station. Live music, food trucks, games, bus tours and more are part of the festivities from 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Keeping with the ’70s theme (since the first MARTA trains departed from Avondale in 1979), Yacht Rock Schooner is the headline performer at 5:45 p.m. Note that the event is free, but ticket reservations are required.

There is no parking at the Avondale Yard. Choose from the following commute options:

  • Bike or request an Uber or Lyft to 2775 E. Ponce de Leon Avenue
  • Take a blue line train to the Avondale MARTA station where there will be a shuttle to the festival
  • Transfer to bus 120 at the Avondale MARTA station if it is there before the shuttle. You can also board the bus at any bus stop along the route.
