More than 40 food trucks, local artisans, a family fun zone and musical entertainment by live bands and DJs will gather at Piedmont Park for the Atlanta Street Food Festival from noon until 8 p.m. on July 12. Make a beeline to the Bar Meatball food truck and order classic meatballs with sauce, meatball sliders with fries and Italian-American pasta topped with meatballs. Combo plates are $7 and single sliders are $3 each. Sauce options include classic tomato, arugula walnut pesto, fredo or mushroom gravy. Cool off from the heat with made-to-order ice cream sandwiches ($5) or the signature Zeppole Joey’s “bag o donuts” with Nutella ($3). The event is free, but a wristband is required to buy food from the food trucks and to buy beer. Purchase your wristband ($10.50 each or 4 for $25) online before Saturday and receive $1 off each menu item over $6 at each truck. Kids ages 12 and under get in free, and event proceeds benefit The Giving Kitchen. Download the Atlanta Street Food Festival app to buy tickets, view food truck menus and get directions.
