On Mother’s Day weekend, the natural beauty of spring will compete with the visual allure afforded by the return one of Roswell’s longest-running arts festivals.

The 23rd Annual Colors Festival of Arts will be in full swing at the city’s historic town square on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This event is always a crowd pleaser, according to Christy Keys, event coordinator for the past seven years.

“I think people have made it a family tradition for years and years to bring their moms on Mother’s Day. They look forward to coming back for it,” she said. “The community we live in has been willing to make it a part of their lives.”

Colors attract artists and craftsmen from around the Southeast as well as locally. Glass, paintings, photography, jewelry, sculptures are always a part of a wide array of original arts and crafts that captivate the beholder. “We have 90 vendors this year. We allow only so many per category, and jewelry always fills up the fastest, with pottery next,” Keys said.

Entertainment is scheduled throughout both days, with everything from storytellers and local singer/songwriters and bands to local dance groups and orchestras.

There is even a “toddler rock” group, Keys said.

Food choices will include typical festival fare such as gyros, corn dogs, funnel cakes and fresh-squeezed lemonade. Presented by Roswell Junior Woman’s Club and Roswell Visitors Bureau, the event raises funds that support the numerous charitable and community programs the Club sponsors.

A free shuttle will run from Roswell City Hall to the Town Square throughout the days.
