44th Annual Roswell Arts Festival

September 18 and 19, 2010

The Tradition Continues…

This event helped establish and cement Roswell’s reputation as an arts community and it just keeps giving back to the community in so many ways.

The Event itself features fine arts and high quality original craft created by artists and artisans from throughout the Southeastern U.S. Musical Entertainment, Dance and an array of entertainment highlight the days.

A fun outing for the entire family …. But this festival is so much more. Sponsored by the Roswell Recreation Association, proceeds from the event benefit the recreational needs of the community. The Roswell Arts Festival has made financial contributions toward many of the parks and activities that Roswell has to offer its citizens today. Funds have been donated for the purchase of park land, buildings and furnishings of buildings, equipment, plans, matching funds to obtain grants or make purchases, and probably the most noticeable donation was the Sprayground that opened in 2009 at Riverside Park. The Sprayground was definitely a splashing success. But, it became apparent that shade would make the experience even more fun. So, the Roswell Recreation Association jumped right in (ok, make that waded right in) and provided the funds to erect shade, making the sprayground an even more enjoyable experience.

The terrific all volunteer Roswell Recreation Association makes it possible for all the funds raised from the Roswell Arts Festival to go for use in the Roswell Recreation and Parks Department. They invite you to come to Town Square on September 18 & 19, enjoy some incredible artwork, the ambiance of the Town Square and experience a wonderful community event.

A free shuttle will run from City Hall to the Historic Town Square each day of the event from 10 A.M. – 6 P.M.

An array of festive foods will be available from a variety of vendors tempting you with so many delicious treats!
