Queen’s Coronation presented by Unitus Community Credit Union
The announcement and crowning of the 2020 Rose Festival Queen will go down in history as one of the most unique in the 113-year history of the festival. For the first time since 1930, the Rose Festival princesses elected their own queen, and she will be announced in a private ceremony on Thursday, July 30, kept private due to the constraints of state and county COVID-19 health restrictions.
The individual princesses and the crowning ceremony will be featured in the Queen’s Coronation presented by Unitus Community Credit Union, an hour-long television special airing at 4:00 p.m. on KPDX Fox12+ on Saturday and Sunday, August 1 and 2. The 2020 Rose Festival Queen will represent Portland and Rose Festival until the next festival, appearing on behalf of Rose Festival in events either virtual or in person, as restrictions allow.
