Rose Festival Auction
2023 Roses and Ravens Dinner & Auction
Oct 13, 2023 | 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM


The Portland Rose Festival’s annual fall fundraising event is something to look forward to! Held as a benefit for the Portland Rose Festival Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, the auction raises mission-critical funds to ensure the future of Festival events and programs that have been a Portland tradition for more than a century. An amazing array of items, including one-of-a-kind experiences, can be found in the online auction and live (in-person only bidding) auction, and there are other ways to participate as well — by purchasing raffle tickets, or with a direct donation to the Foundation in the special appeal. Your support will help us perpetuate the Rose Festival, and allow the Foundation to continue producing an annual celebration to unite the city we love — the Rose City.
