2020 Pop-Up Performance Series
Tickets benefit the Roswell Arts Fund and its mission of bringing world-class arts opportunities to Roswell and greater north metropolitan Atlanta.
RAF envisions creating a new, state-of-the-art and regionally distinct performance space. Having completed a feasibility study in 2019, RAF understands how a new performance space for music, theatre, and dance—a place where our community gathers to enjoy a favorite band or ballet production, a destination for entertainment, inspiration, and laughter, and to present fresh opportunities to showcase emerging talent and bring world-class performances—will expand and enhance Roswell’s arts and culture scene.
The 2020 Pop-Up Performance Series presents curated performing arts experiences to engage audiences and strengthen community support for development of the new facility. Additional experiences will be “popping up” throughout Roswell in 2020.
Initial sponsors for the 2020 Pop-Up Performance Series include our Premier Sponsor Martin’s Garden at Coleman Farm, joined by From the Earth Brewing Company, Roswell Historic Cottage, Mojo Vinyl Records, Gate City Brewing and Hitch Law, LLC
