Songwriters Tour Concert Series at the Chattahoochee Nature Center
The new concert series at the Chattahoochee Nature Center takes place the first Friday of every month through October 5th. They’re partnering with “Home by Dark Productions” and James Casto to bring the best songwriters in America to Roswell, GA for songwriter-in-the-round shows. Invite your friends and enjoy musical evenings in an unforgettable setting at the Chattahoochee Nature Center’s Ben Brady Lakeside Pavilion. This unique and intimate concert venue gives visitors a place to meander through beautiful gardens, view wildlife in the aviaries, and enjoy the moonlight and ambiance of nature at a unique river front location at 9135 Willeo Road in Roswell. The upscale and intimate seating section allows you to rent tables that seat 2, 4, 6, and 8. Table reservations include table and chairs, but the food and table décor is up to you. Bring a homemade picnic complete with candles or order a takeout dinner from a local restaurant. We also have general admission seating tickets, so you are permitted to bring your lawn chairs or just a blanket, just no large tables. The parking is free and the center is a great place for a 'Date Night" or a “Girls Night Out” . So, gather your friends for an entertaining evening of live music under the stars. But hurry, the shows will sell out!
