The Best Fish Fry Ever!
The Annual Fish Fry Fest is the ultimate community
cookout of epic proportions!
In the southern United States, a fish fry is typically a family or social gathering, held outdoors or in large halls often as potluck affairs. At a typical fish fry, quantities of fish (such as bream, catfish, flounder, and bass) are battered and deep-fried in cooking oil. Due to various taste buds, the batter can consist of mixes of cornmeal, flour, milk or buttermilk, and seasonings. In addition to the fish, hush puppies, fries, coleslaw, cheese grits, or spaghetti are often served as a side dish.

MARTA & Parking
Due to the numerous event's that take place in Atlanta on an average weekend we also suggest taking MARTA. We RECOMMEND taking the Marta to North Avenue Station (North/ South Rail Line) and taking the #51 Bus that will drop you off in front of the park. This is one of the most accessible and convenient way to get to the festival, other than a ride share (Lyft/ Uber).
