Summer Events Return To Alpharetta As COVID Restrictions Lift

Released May 20, 2021 01:16 PM

The City of Alpharetta is excited to bring back several of the community’s favorite, free summer events for 2021! As COVID-19 restrictions begin to subside and the current case count continues to decrease it has been decided that providing outdoor opportunities for the community to come together is in the best interest of everyone.

“We are excited to be able to provide such a great variety of free, outdoor events this summer as we start to see the return of normal in Alpharetta”, said Mayor of Alpharetta, Jim Gilvin. “I encourage our residents to continue to do what they feel is in the best interest of themselves and their families but we hope that these events can be a bright spot for everyone this summer and Alpharetta can come together to celebrate what we have overcome.”




5 - 10pm


Food Truck Alley returns to Downtown Alpharetta for a limited, summer pop-up series on the first Thursday of the month in June, July, and August. Culinary options include more than 10 food trucks each month offering a diverse range of cuisine types. With the support from Alpharetta Convention & Visitors Bureau, this family-friendly event will feature live music, limited seating and will be held on Old Roswell Street. 


“We received an outpouring of feedback from the community earlier this spring and our city council and staff members listened,” said Morgan Rodgers, Alpharetta Recreation, Parks & Cultural Services Director. “Food Truck Alley checks all of the boxes for our residents and visitors. They want a casual, outdoor, family and budget-friendly event with food trucks so we think the Summer Pop-Up series of Food Truck Alley will give them just that while also sticking to a limited schedule so they can support our fantastic downtown restaurants as well!”

“Home By Dark, City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Convention & Visitors Bureau have a long friendship.  Our show was born here and the people of this city have become an integral part of our lives.  And that’s why we are so grateful and excited to return home to Brooke Street Park with our unique style of show featuring the best performing songwriters in the world surrounded by our sublime Home By Dark band.  The last year taught us that every day and every performance is precious.  So, we plan on holding nothing back as we musically embrace the community that has supported us for all these years,” said Home by Dark Founder & Creator, James Casto.
