The third annual Atlanta Street Food Festival rolls into Piedmont Park on July 12 from noon to 8 p.m.

Food truck fanatics will have the chance to sample from the city’s best while supporting The Giving Kitchen, the culinary charity with the unique mission of providing crisis grants to members of Atlanta’s restaurant community facing unanticipated hardship.

Presented by MARTA, the festival will feature more than 40 food trucks, including Champion Cheesesteaks, Yumbii, Ibiza Bites, Mix’d Up, Vietnamies, Angel Fire BBQ and Masala Fresh. There will also be local merchants, artisans, live entertainment and amusement rides for children and adults.

Tickets are available for purchase online at atlantastreetfoodfestival.com. Guests who purchase their ticket in advance will receive a discount wristband which offers patrons one dollar off each menu item over six dollars. Kids 12 and under are free. An individual adult pass is $10.50 and a group of four adults can purchase tickets at a group rate of $25.
