What if I don't have a Porch?

​What if I don't live in Portland?

How do I know if I've successfully registered?

What if I didn't receive a lawn sign?

​Can my rose garden be a part of the Porch Parade?

Get Started

1. Register Your Display

Be sure to Register your Porch, it's FREE and EASY!
When registered, you'll be added to our Porch Parade Map. A limited production Porch Parade and 2021 Roses for Hope lawn signs will be distributed to early registers during the week of May 24. All decorations should be complete and ready for show by Monday, May 31.

The Rose Festival Porch Parade celebration runs from Monday, May 31 through Sunday, June 13, 2021.

Get the word out to help us and Portland Metro celebrate by asking your neighbors to get involved too!

2. Decorate Your Porch, Create Your Display

Choose one of our three Porch Parade categories as inspiration. Unleash your creativity and inspire hope for your friends and neighbors.

Porches must be fully decorated by 12:00 noon on Monday, May 31, and able to stay up until midnight Sunday, June 13. Porches must be appropriate for a family friendly audience.

Don’t have a porch? No problem! Feel free to decorate your lawn, sidewalk, window, or anything else visible from the street or sidewalk.
