Roswell continues its tradition of celebrating America's independence with the fourth annual BBQ & Bluegrass Celebration at Barrington Hall, and the 20th Annual Roswell Fireworks Extravaganza at Roswell High School, on July 4. 

Enjoy barbecue and bluegrass music in the backyard of Barrington Hall. The King family, who built Barrington Hall, held a 4th of July barbecue for their friends and neighbors in the 1800s. Roswell will revisit their tradition with barbecue, beverages and desserts available for purchase, hayrides and a kid’s zone.

The Bluegrass Celebration will last from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Barrington Hall. Admission is free and no reservations are required. There will be vendors with food and drink available for purchase.

Later in the evening, the 20th Annual Roswell Fireworks Extravaganza will be held on the front lawn of Roswell High School. This family-friendly event will be filled with live stage performances by Last Call Band and Party Nation, a kid’s zone, ninja climbing wall, giant inflatables and food trucks. Residents are encouraged to bring their picnic blankets, chairs and the entire family.

While the event is family friendly, dogs, drugs, alcohol and tobacco are not allowed at these events.

Families can purchase tickets for the inflatables and carnival games at the ticket booth. Tickets are $1 for one ticket, $10 for 12 tickets  or families can purchase a $20 wristband for unlimited inflatables, carnival games, and tattoo/face paint (excludes balloons and food items). Inflatables and games range from one to three tickets each. Checks are accepted and can be made payable to City of Roswell.
