Who will become the next Queen of Rosaria? One of Portland's most time-honored traditions continues as the 2023 Rose Festival Court is presented, and the new reigning Queen is named during this special investiture ceremony. The Queen represents Portland and the Rose Festival for one year at appearances throughout the country and abroad. When choosing a Queen, judges consider each Court members' leadership and scholarship achievement, school activities, civic involvement, volunteer service, communication skills, and overall impression.

Congratulations to 2022 Rose Festival Queen Senya Scott from Ida B. Wells High School! Learn more about Queen Senya here.

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.
