Roswell Festivals Throughout the Year

Roswell offers top-notch dining and shopping options along with fun events throughout the year. The community’s unique culture is celebrated through these events.

Special Events Manager Chris Ward says that putting on Alive in Roswell is a year-round job for the city. He says they prioritize Roswell-based businesses, with about 60 percent of the booths run by local companies.

Grandiose Grape Wine Festival

The Grandiose Grape Wine Festival is a wine tasting event that offers an impressive collection of 100+ world-class wines. It also features gourmet food and live music. All tickets include entry and entertainment, a souvenir glass, and valet parking. Tickets are available online and at The Mill Kitchen and Bar.

The festival is for Artists by Artists, allowing the artists to have a voice in creating and operating the event. It also allows attendees to meet the artists and get a closer look at their work. The festival is held each spring.

The festival features a variety of events for all ages. There are food trucks, games and prizes, live music, and a large parade. It also includes a car show and arts and crafts vendors. The event is a great place to get together with friends and family for a day of fun.

Alive in Roswell

Roswell’s popular “Alive in Roswell” event is back and breaking records. This monthly event is held in Historic Roswell and shuts down the city’s Canton Street, East Alley and Town Square for people (and dogs) to walk safely. The event also features live music, food vendors and a variety of fun activities.

This year the festival will feature 86 artists in a variety of mediums, including painting, photography, sculpting, glass, metalwork, and jewelry. The event will also include artist demonstrations and live acoustic music.

There will also be multiple food trucks offering delicious snacks and dinner. The festival is dog friendly, but please keep them on leash and clean up after them. Parking is available at the city hall and Woodstock Park, with a free trolley bus connecting the venues. This is a great family-friendly event that is not to be missed! Proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Roswell Beer Festival

Roswell Beer Festival is a beer tasting event that takes place in historic downtown Roswell. It takes place annually and benefits STAR House Foundation, a local 501c3 charity that provides after-school tutoring and mentoring for at-risk youth in North Fulton County. The festival features over 450 unique craft beers, including special beers brewed just for the occasion. You can also enjoy food from local restaurants and listen to live music.

The festival’s organizers organize the beers by type. This makes it easier to find what you’re looking for, so you can stick with your favorites and try something new. They also provide food tokens that you can use to get food from the vendors.

The festival is a great way to spend the day and support a good cause at the same time. If you’re a beer drinker, you should definitely check it out! The admission price is reasonable, and it’s even better if you’re a CAMRA member.

Roswell Folk Pottery Festival

The Roswell Folk Pottery Festival is a celebration of Middle Georgia’s pottery tradition. The event features ceramic show and auction, heritage skills demonstrations, art and craft sales, antique cars and tractors, a quilt show, and children’s activities. The festival also hosts a 5k and 1-mile fun run.

Guests can purchase fresh-cut lavender from local growers, take home a lavender wand or create their own unique lavender bath salts. The festival also offers a variety of food and beverages, including a special beer brewed by a local brewery and a specialty lavender cocktail.

The Roswell Riverside Sounds concert series is a monthly event from April to September featuring musical genres. The music highlights original artists who bring uplifting beats and moving lyrics to their performances. The program is free, and visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. The next event is a performance by classical guitarist duo Catanza at Mimosa Hall and Gardens.
