The upcoming Roswell Arts Festival is expected to draw 10,000 people - many of them tourists to Roswell. With tourism meaning big revenue in Georgia, the Roswell parks department is capitalizing on sporting events, bridge tournaments and festivals.
Next month, the Roswell Arts Festival could draw 10,000 people or so to the town square. In addition to buying art, festival goers will probably spend money elsewhere in Roswell, benefiting local businesses. That’s what festival organizers are banking on, anyway. And it’s why Roswell’s parks department has joined cities across the nation in leveraging events and festivals to draw people into town and boost tourism spending. Throughout the year, there are also lacrosse and baseball tournaments, gymnastics meets, bridge tournaments and a number of festivals at Roswell’s three historic homes – Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation. “All these events are causing people to spend money in Roswell. There’s no doubt about that,” said …
