The Rose Festival is a place to play!

Rose Festival open Memorial Day weekend.

Description: The Portland Rose Festival offers people a place to play and a pledge to be positive with events and programs that both capture the imagination and celebrate the spirit. Since 1907 the Rose Festival has been Oregon's defining event and has helped brand Portland as the 'City of Roses.' After celebrating its Centennial in 2007, the festival was named the 'Best Festival in the World' in 2007 and 2011 by the International Festivals and Events Association, the trade organization for events like the Tournament of Roses and Mardi Gras.

Rose Festival events have captivated generations for more than a century, managing to be both grand and community-based at the same time. The mission of the nonprofit Foundation that produces the festival is to promote the arts, education, volunteerism, patriotism and environmental responsibility, which the festival does through it's popular and distinctive schedule of events and programs--like the Grand Floral Parade, the Starlight and Junior parades and CityFair, where the sight of bright lights and carnival rides and the sound of music and laughter enhance the proximity to the downtown core and the picturesque Willamette River.

The First 100 years was well done by the Portland Rose Festival. The parade was outstanding and I loved the Ball and every activity. I am so proud of the marvelous staff who works so hard to make our city be outstanding with wonderful events for everyone. Keep it up for another 100 years.

Best Festival in Portland

June is my favorite time of year, I love it when this festival is in full bloom!

GREAT experience! The most FUN I had all summer!

by ShopGal , 09/06/2007

The Portland Rose Festival was an unforgettable experience! It seems to get better and better with each year! The Centennial Celebration this year was absolutely the best. My family and I had a great time at the Rose Cup Races out at PIR, as well as at Waterfront Village during some perfect early summer weather. And despite the rainfall during the Grand Floral Parade, it was still perfect. Our "liquid sunshine" adds a distinctly Portland touch to the local favorite. I highly recommend this Festival to visitors and residents alike!
