Business As Usual

The Portland Rose Festival has inspired the public to gather and celebrate against a backdrop of historic external forces for the past 110 years. This year’s Rose Festival will be another brilliant example of how a community can both honor diversity and celebrate unity.

Recent events in Portland have led to rumors that the Rose Festival is considering cancelling its popular parades due to safety concerns. This is not true. The Starlight Parade, Junior Parade and Grand Floral Parade lineups are filled with entries that will delight and inspire festival-goers. As always, the Rose Festival will work closely with City leaders, Portland Police and other public agencies to ensure the comfort and safety of festival-goers and participants.

2017 Theme:   Brilliant.
