Cycling, Art, and Nature – Oh, my!

We’re about to head into a busy but fun time of festivals in Roswell. There’s so much fun coming that it’s hard to know where to start. So, how about the basics and then I’ll fill you in with subsequent Blogs with the details?

GO WILD IN ROSWELL: May 20 – June 6
Nature, history, great restaurants, and shops await your discovery as you GO WILD IN ROSWELL. Over 64 Special Events and Activities are planned during May 20 – June 6 for fun and festivities. Many are free, others have nominal charges associated with them.

Start planning with

Colors Festival of Arts – May 8 and 9, on the Square in Roswell
This is the 20th year that artists gather on the square to wow you with their creations. This juried festival has artists with works as varied as crafts such as rock candles to all kinds of glass creations to oil and acrylic paintings. There’s something for everyone, even the children. And what festival would be complete without festival food? I can picture the funnel cakes, kabobs, etc., that you just can’t find anywhere else. During the festival, you will be entertained with dance troops and musical groups performing in the gazebo. It makes for a great family outing!

Roswell Cycling Festival - Fun for the Entire Family!
April 24: Mountain Bike Day (April 24); at Big Creek Mountain Bike Trails with a skills clinic, dirt jump demos, plus yummy hotdogs and hamburgers cooked on the grill.

April 25: 9th Annual Roswell Criterium - Professional & Amateur Bicycle Race in Roswell's Historic District. Thrills, spills and high speed make these races exciting! Some of the top teams will be competing - don't miss the fun.

But that’s not all, in addition to a great time to meet and greet while watching cyclists racing around the course there will be a Kids Bicycle Safety Rodeo and Youth Races, the annual Mayor's Ride, a Be Bike Friendly 5-K Foot Race, Swap Meet, and businesses will be decorated with Art Bicycles.
