Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Thursday, April 11th, 2024

Mark your calendars for a delicious event! Our Recreation Department is having another Picnic in the Park with more than a dozen food trucks on Saturday, April 13. It’s happening from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., rain or shine, in Carolyn Crayton Park (150 Willie Smokie Glover Drive). This will be the first festival of 2024, and the 7th overall since Recreation began hosting them. The event is free and open to the public, but the food must be purchased. 

"Our goal in Recreation is to Build Healthy Communities Through People, Parks and Programs,” says Senior Administrative Assistance Kalyn Collins. “Our Picnic in the Park Food Truck Festivals are a great way to support local vendors, foster community engagement, and facilitate cultural exchange.”

There are 12 food trucks and vendors with a variety of different foods, a wine truck from Jail Creek Farms Winery, and frozen treats from Macon Water Ice. People can enjoy live music, and a kids’ zone with bounce houses and an inflatable obstacle course.  

Food trucks and vendors include A&K Concessions, ABC Catering, LLC., BurgerIM, Egg Roll Boyz, Guitarras Mexican Grill, Patty Shack, Soul 2 Soul, Tina Moe’s Kitchen, Streetz Eatz, Jail Creek Farms Winery, Macon Water Ice, and Peewee Bakery Sweets. 

“This is a great way to support local businesses while enjoying our park and giving families a fun event where they can spend time together,” said Recreation Director Robert Walker. “These picnics have been a great success and we’re excited to have another opportunity for more people to come out.”  


This is a free event, and you’re invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sprawl out and enjoy the day. The next events are May 11, September 14, and October 12.
