Portland Rose Festival After two years of virtual celebrations, parades are BACK as in-person events for the 2022 Portland Rose Festival!

One of the world's great special events, the Portland Rose Festival is celebrating 2022 with the theme, Rose City Reunion. In both 2007 and 2011 the Rose Festival was named the Best Festival in the World by the International Festivals & Events Association.

The Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade is the second largest all-floral parade in North America and the single-largest spectator event in Oregon. The spectacle featuring floral floats, marching bands, equestrians and specialty units will travel a new route in 2022, starting from Memorial Coliseum as usual but ending at Lloyd Center. View the 2022 Grand Floral Parade Route Map.

A week prior to the Grand Floral Parade, the streets of downtown Portland glow with the lights of the Starlight Parade. The illuminated parade is one of the Portland Rose Festival's most popular events, drawing more than 250,000 spectators to view the sparkling floats, gleaming bands and glowing marching groups. This parade will also travel a new route in 2022, traveling from Naito Parkway through downtown and ending near Providence Park. View the 2022 Starlight Parade Route Map.

A featured highlight in both the Starlight Parade and Grand Floral Parade is the One More Time Around Again Marching Band presented by Standard TV & Appliance. This all-age band boasts more than 500 members from the region and across the country.

Both the Grand Floral Parade and Starlight Parade will be televised live in Portland and throughout the region on KPTV FOX 12 Oregon (watch live online at www.kptv.com). FOX 12 will also be broadcasting a third parade during Rose Festival, the Fred Meyer Junior Parade on Wednesday, June 8.
