Show Details

Because nothing says “celebration” quite like fireworks, the Portland Rose Festival gets the festivities started off on an awe-inspiring note. This year you’re invited to join us for an amazing night of fireworks!

Be there on Friday, May 27 for the Opening Night Fireworks presented by Oregonian | OregonLive, the Portland Rose Festival’s kick-off event. The fireworks will be choreographed to music provided by Live 95.5.

Enjoy a FREE concert by The Rocktarts and Portland Pride Chorus at 8:30pm and an encore from The Rocktarts immediately following the fireworks display.

Portland, Oregon based Michelle DeCourcy and the Rocktarts are living proof that honesty, passion and ambition prevail in Rock & Roll. Formed in 2013 as an alternative-rock cover band, the members quickly decided that composing and playing original music was more their passion. Portland Pride Chorus’ signature sound is a blend of energy, artistry and finesse that will sweep you off your feet and transport you to another place and time. They consider themselves the best and brightest assemblage of a cappella singers the region has to offer.

The show is one of Oregon’s largest fireworks displays, with thunderous pyrotechnics that soar above CityFair beginning at nightfall.
