The City Kicks off Food Truck Alley with an XL Branding, Games and Elevated Music


The fun in Alpharetta is hitting the streets with the weekly Food Truck Alley series starting Thursday, April 19, a weekly concert series in Brooke Street Park kicking off April 21, and corn hole, chess and checker games placed around the city.

This year the weekly event is re-branded Food Truck Alley XL because it includes jumbo games, some new, rotating food trucks, and elevated musical entertainment curated by Matilda’s. “We are thrilled to add to this fun, successful event, making it even more enjoyable for the community,” said Morgan Rodgers, Director of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Services. “Alpharetta is a place to play and have fun, and Food Truck Alley XL is a great place to do that.”

The weekly Brooke Street Park Summer Concert Series, located in the park behind Alpharetta City Hall, brings theater, music and fun to life, Saturdays from April to October. The weekly events are free, and family-friendly, simply bring a blanket and a picnic. Performances are conducted by different Alpharetta based entertainment groups, including the Alpharetta Symphony, Act 1 Theatre Group and Home By Dark.


The fun continues with 14 corn hole games, placed in locations around the City, and chess and checker boards in Wills Park. The corn hole games will be located at the Alpharetta Aquatic Center, Cogburn Park, Brooke Street Park, the Alpharetta Community Center, the Lions Club Pavilion, Wills Park Recreation Center, Webb Bridge Park, Will Park Equestrian Center, Rock Mill Park, and Tech Alpharetta. The chess and checker boards are located in the Wills Park playground on Wills Road. “Having multiple options of places to play and have fun is what makes Alpharetta such a great place to live, work, and most importantly have fun,” said Rodgers.

The Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau is a sponsor of the events and games. “We value our partnership with the City of Alpharetta, and we enjoy supporting and raising awareness of the awesome things happening in Alpharetta every day,” said Janet Rodgers, President & CEO of Alpharetta Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We invite visitors to experience what the locals live every day and see all the fun activities our city has to offer.”
