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 at the RoZone stage by The Rocktarts and Pride of Portland Chorus at 8:00 p.m., 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. Pride of Portland 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.
