Traffic alert: Roswell Beer Festival this weekend means road closures

Even if you didn’t get tickets to the sold-out Roswell Beer Festival this weekend, you still have to deal with the nearby road closures.

The annual event being held downtown Saturday will feature more than 400 beers to raise money for the STAR House Foundation that, according to the group’s website, provides tutoring and mentors for at-risk children in northern Fulton County.

For 12 hours starting at 7:30 a.m., Mimosa Boulevard from Oxbo Way to Ga. 120 will be closed, the city said. During the same timeframe, Park Square Court from Mimosa to Ga. 120 will also be closed.

All traffic on Bulloch Avenue will use the parking lot to go past Mill Kitchen to get onto Ga. 120.

The Facebook event page said this is the seventh time the festival has been held. If you are going, here’s a useful map showing the locations of the beer types.
