What To Expect

Taste of Soul Festival is a citywide festival that takes place in one of Atlanta’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods. Located in the Heart of America’s Soul Food Capital, Taste of Soul is the largest festival West of Peachtree. This festival is known internationally for their Soul and Southern food, live R&B/Soul music, art, and Atlanta’s best people watching.
To help appease your stomach’s conscious and to promote healthy lifestyle choices in the community, the festival is hosting a super fun 5k. The Soul Rise 5k is Atlanta’s only Labor Day weekend race and benefits early childhood development. This race runs through the heart of Atlanta's West Downtown across from the Mercedes Benz Stadium. So you are running for a good cause! Even if there is a little part of you that is running to keep all the soul food from clogging your arteries, you can rest assured that you are in fact contributing to supporting healthy communities. AND they were even considerate enough to plan for the 5k race to end when and where the soul food festival starts!
