Alpharetta cancels Thursday evening food truck event

Seeking to encourage people to patronize its brick-and-mortar restaurants and shops, the city of Alpharetta announced it has canceled the 2020 edition of Food Truck Alley.

Food Truck Alley has been a Thursday evening, May-to-October tradition in downtown Alpharetta for the last seven years.

“The decision to cancel the 2020 Food Truck Alley series was based on our desire to support the local restaurants that have made a significant commitment to our community,” said Morgan Rodgers, the city’s recreation, parks and cultural services director.

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, Alpharetta also canceled this month’s Taste of Alpharetta; the Fourth of July fireworks in Wills Park; and, through July, the Brooke Street Park summer concerts. The opening of the weekly Alpharetta Farmer’s Market was delayed a month, to this past Saturday, and it is smaller this year.

Alpharetta said it is following the guidance of the CDC and other public health agencies in evaluating additional near-term special events. Information: https://bit.ly/2XaEQTr
