The Portland Rose Festival’s annual fall fundraising event is going virtual this year, so anyone anywhere in the world can join in and show their support! The Rose Festival Virtual Fundraiser for Hope is a benefit for the Portland Rose Festival Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, and will raise mission-critical funds to ensure the future of Festival events and programs that have been a Portland tradition for more than a century. Your support will help us perpetuate hope for our community, as we look forward to a time when we can gather together safely and celebrate the city we love — the Rose City.
