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 2023 as we Focus on Fun for the CareOregon Starlight Parade on June 3, and the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade on June 10. 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, and our downtown noontime concerts on weekdays.
