The park is intended to foster Atlanta’s burgeoning art and food scene, and will feature local food trucks, including plant-based burger joint The Slutty Vegan, live mural-painting, live music, and games.

“Our goal is to embrace the neighborhood and foster an environment for current and future artists to explore their craft,” McCarthy said in a press release. “This is meant to be a place where artists can create and collaborate and have a long-term place where they won’t have to relocate after a few years.”  

McCarthy and his business partners collaborated with multiple artists in order to bring the park to life, including Wolf Idea Group, Cat Eye Creative, and Toybox Creative.

June 3rd’s event is free to the public, but you can secure tickets on Eventbrite. Moving forward, What The Truck will be open weekly, from 11am to 7pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. And after 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays, a DJ will take over the scene. For that, What The Truck will charge a $5 entrance fee.
