Marching Bands provide some of the most entertaining and dynamic entries in each of the Portland Rose Festival's parades! We'd like to invite you to join us in 2024 for the CareOregon Starlight Parade on June 1, and the Grand Floral Parade on June 8. In addition to our signature parades, we are excited to offer additional performance opportunities at CityFair—a flexible venue appropriate to breakout band, concert band, jazz band and choir performances, which is available during multiple dates & times throughout the three weeks of the Rose Festival.
- Please double-check your school’s calendar to make sure you do not have any conflicts with event dates.
- Register your band for every parade & event for which you wish to be considered, regardless of your previous year’s scores or participation.
- Complete and submit this form for Band Committee review by November 15, 2023.
- If submitting after the November 15 application deadline, please contact the Bands Team to confirm receipt of your form.
Invitations for Rose Festival parade participation will be issued via email by December 15. To avoid any misunderstandings, please do not publicize your participation in an event to parents or students until official invitations have been issued. If you have any questions, please contact the Bands Team at the Rose Festival office.
Thank you for your continued involvement in the Portland Rose Festival! We look forward to working with you and your students as we bring music and celebration to the streets of Portland!
