July 4th in Roswell, Georgia
Grab your best red, white, and blue for a fun weekend in Roswell!
2020 has been anything but traditional. Although it’s stopping some of Roswell’s typical 4th of July celebrations, there’s still plenty of fun to be had!
The City of Roswell knows that locals and visitors are going to miss events like the Fireworks Extravaganza and the Barbecue and Bluegrass event at Barrington Hall. However, they’re looking for support to paint the town red, white, and blue! Through their Stars & Stripes in Roswell initiative, they’re inviting locals to hang up American flags at their homes and businesses. As you drive around town, make sure you look for the flags!
Stay cool out on the water! The Chattahoochee River is a great place to spend the 4th. You can kayak, canoe, paddleboard, or float in a tube down the river. Need to rent equipment? Nantahala Outdoor Center in Roswell has everything you need for a great day on the water! They have the latest equipment, life preservers, snacks, and drinks to take along on your trip. Make your reservation with them here.
Looking for something different? Take it to the trees! Sign up for zip lining on the Screaming Eagle Zipline Course at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Space is limited, register in advance! Want to keep your feet on the ground? CNC has their annual summer exhibit, the Butterfly Encounter, where you can get up-close and personal with stunning butterfly species. Plan your visit here.
Spend the day on Commerce Parkway! A whole day of fun packed into one parking lot. Start the day with a round of mini-golf at the Fringe Miniature Golf Course. There are two different 18-hole courses to try. Make it fun by letting the winner choose where to grab dinner!
Head indoors to cool off at the Computer Museum of America. You can check out the technology timeline, Apollo 11 exhibit, vintage gaming, and supercomputers! Also, the Computer Museum is having a deal Friday, July 3. Kids get in free! Use promo code “DRONE” when purchasing tickets. On Friday, July 3, don’t miss their Tech Tales event with author and illustrator, Shanda McCloskey, happening at 1:00 p.m.
Once you complete the tour at CMoA, head into the evening with a drive-in movie screening by Aurora Cineplex. Starting at 9:30, you can watch a movie from the comfort of your car. Don't worry, you can still get all the yummy movie-watching snacks from the concession stand.
Get ready to tap your toes along to the music. Rock n Taco is hosting a 4th of July Weekend Music Fest. You can see a multitude of performances starting Friday, July 3 – July 5. Be sure to check out their website for more information.
Looking for live music but are interested in more social distancing measures? From the Earth Brewing Company will be hosting a Drive-In Concert in their parking lot. Rock out from your own car! Tickets must be purchased in advance.
Last but not least, head to the river bank to From the Earth’s Beer Garden to see the Highbeams perform live music while you take in views of the Chattahoochee.
