Know Before You Go:
Straight from the organizers:
Food & Beverage: Pack a picnic or enjoy delicious food from local vendors. Alcoholic beverages can not be brought in to Centennial Olympic Park, however, you may purchase these items on-site. All coolers, baskets, and backpacks will be checked by security.
No high-back chairs (nothing higher than 24 inches), glass, pets, or grills of any kind are allowed.
Both the Philips Arena and the Peachtree Center Marta Stations are convenient to the park.
If you'd rather drive, there are several lots surrounding the park, but be sure to come prepared with cash.
