Queen's Coronation

On KPTV: Queen's Coronation presented by Unitus Community Credit Union

Date: June 20, 2021
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM




In 2021, amidst the backdrop of the global pandemic, the Portland Rose Festival is forging ahead and is crowning its Queen!

The Queen’s Coronation presented by Unitus Community Credit Union, which is the crowning event for the 2021 Rose Festival Queen, will be held as a private ceremony at the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park, but you can watch the televised event on KPTV FOX 12 Oregon on Sunday, June 20, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The television special will feature background stories and brief speeches by each of the fifteen individual princesses, as well as the crowning ceremony. The 2021 Queen of Rosaria 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.

Special thanks go to Unitus Community Credit Union, for their support of the Rose Festival Court and Coronation. We also thank our friends, the Royal Rosarians for their stewardship of Rose Festival pageantry. And we also must thank the Floral Design Institute, who will be providing the floral decor!

Rose Festival Court

The Rose Festival Court is comprised of up to 15 outstanding young women chosen from Portland Metro-area high schools. After their selection in March, Court Members attend after-school and evening orientation meetings during the month of April. Beginning the first week of May, they travel full-time 5 days a week for 5 weeks, visiting community events, business leaders, hospitals, senior living centers, youth organizations and civic groups. Court Members also receive one-on-one mentorship from top female executives, a $3,500 scholarship provided by The Randall Group valid for any accredited college, university or trade program, a complete wardrobe including shoes and accessories, and a lifetime of enduring friendships with their Rose Festival Court sisters. The Rose Festival Court is presented by Unitus Community Credit Union.
