PORTLAND:  

ROSE FESTIVAL FLEET WEEK
Since 1907, visiting ships have made their way to Portland’s waterfront for the Rose Festival Fleet Week. The City of Roses is known to be a favorite port of call for military (and non-military) visitors, as Portland’s citizens thank them and make them feel welcome. The Portland Rose Festival is extremely fortunate to be one of a few U.S. Ports of Call for a courtesy visit from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and Royal Canadian Navy.


SPRING ROSE SHOW
The Portland Rose Society Annual Spring Rose Show is the largest and longest-running rose show in the nation. The exquisite beauty and fragrances of this yearly show emanate from more than 4,000 blooms.


ROSE FESTIVAL DRAGON BOAT RACES
The Rose Festival is proud to host the Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races, an event that has been bringing an exciting Chinese tradition to Portland for more than two decades, beginning in 1989. Held on the Willamette River near the Hawthorne Bridge, the races feature exciting four-team heats held every nine minutes. More than 80 different teams — local, national and international — compete in boats graciously provided through the Portland-Kaohsiung Sister City Association. 


ROSE FESTIVAL GRAND FLORAL PARADE
For more than 115 years, Portland families, visitors and community groups have been making memories at the Grand Floral Parade. A colorful reflection of local, regional and international communities, the parade draws hundreds of thousands of cheering viewers of every age along a route that winds through Portland’s city streets.
