The Portland Rose Festival has been a treasured tradition since 1907. The festival stands out as a highly anticipated annual event that brings the entire city together for a few special weeks each spring. The festivities culminate with the Spirit Mountain Grand Floral Parade, the prized centerpiece of the festival.
On June 7th, the Spirit Mountain Grand Floral Parade will transform Portland into a hub of fantastic floats, family fun, and a whole lot of love for the Rose City! Join us from 10AM to 2PM to admire dozens of floats as they travel from Memorial Coliseum to Downtown Portland. Watch out for the Spirit Mountain Casino “For Memories Yet to Come” float as the One More Time Around Again Marching Band, one of the world’s largest marching band, plays along!
The time, effort, and creative knack put into the creation of the procession is sure to astound. Enough flowers are used on the floats each year to send someone a dozen roses daily for 30 years! Each floral masterpiece is a visual treat that visitors of all ages can admire. Join hundreds of thousands of visitors in celebrating the floral parade, and enjoy the view as the floats make their way on a 4.2 mile route throughout the city.
The event will be delightful no matter what the weather is like, as reserved indoor seating is available at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Spend the afternoon celebrating the spring weather and soak up the field of flowers. There is no better way to celebrate the ‘City of Roses’ than the Portland Rose Festival. Become a part of one of the region’s most beloved traditions and secure your spot at the Spirit Mountain Grand Floral Parade today!
