In 1938, the Royal Rosarian Rose Garden Contest was established as the first sponsored citywide event to honor the rose, “queen of flowers.” The contest was so popular that it immediately became an annual event.

The Royal Rosarians are committed to continually improving the contest to showcase the best amateur rose gardens and commercial plantings in Portland, the City of Roses. The contest promotes greater appreciation of growing roses honoring those citizens who help beautify Portland through their rose growing efforts, and upholds the signature Royal Rosarian slogan “For You A Rose In Portland Grows!”
