Spring & Summer Events Return

Post Date:05/12/2021 12:00 PM
The City of Roswell will welcome back several popular special events this spring and summer. Many of these City-run events were cancelled last year due to the pandemic. With the decrease in COVID cases and increasing availability of vaccines, City organizers are looking forward to bringing back these outdoor events.

Although these events are outdoors, attendees are strongly encouraged to follow CDC-recommended public health and safety guidelines, including physical distancing and using face masks when distancing is not possible or practical.
