Old Fourth Ward Fall Festival

Let the Celebrations Begin!

Last year’s event drew 10,000 festival-goers. It is a two-day affair built around the enormously popular Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, and it features Atlanta’s best food trucks, live local bands, lantern-making workshops, games and more.

The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Rival Entertainment are teaming up to present a festival experience that embraces the spirit and culture of the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, which debuted in 2010 and drew more than 60,000 participants last year.

The OFWFF will place live entertainment, a food truck rally (with the most popular mobile eateries in the city), adult beverage concessions and a college football sports bar, a kids’ area, lantern-making workshops hosted by premier local artists, pet-friendly zone, a Lantern Parade viewing party and more distinctive experiences at the halfway point of the Lantern Parade route, which marches from Irwin Street at Krog Street Market to Piedmont Park.

Proceeds benefit Art on the Atlanta BeltLine.
