Important update: Food Truck Friday is canceled tomorrow (5/17) due to severe weather forecasts!❗️Attention ❗️

Due to an 80% chance of severe weather tomorrow, Friday May 17th, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Food Truck Friday here at Lake Lanier Olympic Park.

It is our number 1 priority to ensure the safety of vendors, sponsors, and those that attend out events, therefore this decision had to be made.

We will be back on June 21st for the second installment of this amazing community event! So mark your calendars!
