A tour to the Portland Rose Festival can include:

  • Multiple performance opportunities during each festival weekend.
  • Assistance from a local volunteer band host to help you plan your trip.
  • Fun festival opportunities to add an element of play to your tour.
  • Easy access to attractions such as the Oregon Coast, Multnomah Falls and Mt. Hood.

The Portland Rose Festival does not charge a fee to participate in our events, but we do have an application process. Guest Band applications are accepted on a rolling basis. We encourage you to apply early so we can help you plan your trip in advance. For more information about our Band Program, email us.
