    Memorial Day

    Roswell Remembers is the largest Memorial Day Ceremony in Georgia.  In 1997, twelve patriotic individuals came together to create a truly unique Memorial Day event that was non-political and non-commercial. They did this to honor our veterans and the sacrifices they made to protect our freedom. That first ceremony attracted approximately 1,800 individuals. From that humble beginning came the Roswell Memorial Day Ceremony, an event that attracts approximately 6,000 to 7,000 people from throughout Georgia and the Southeast.

  • roswell youth day parade

    The Annual Frances McGahee Youth Day Parade is a long held tradition that is unique to Rowell. Normally held on a Saturday morning in October, this event is as highly anticipated by Roswell children as Halloween Night, if not more so. Since 1950, Roswell has celebrated its youth on this day with massive parade of homemade floats, marching bands, dance performances and more. Organizations of all types and sizes, including but not limited to, schools, city officials, non-profits, performance groups, scout troups and civic organizations. These groups are given a theme each year and are responsible for building and decorating a float or providing a vehicle. Because of its fanciful nature and proximity to Halloween, children often wear their Halloween costumes to the parade and bring sacks and buckets to collect the candy that is thrown from the floats. The parade ends its route at the Roswell Rec Center where a carnival and BBQ carries on for several hours.
