What Is Parading In Place?
Bringing Community Together While Staying Home
The Portland Rose Festival parades have entertained and inspired our community and visitors from around the world for more than 100 years. Each year the spectacular floats, award winning marching bands, talented equestrians, and colorful community groups perform for hundreds of thousands of parade goers on the streets of Portland. This spring, the Rose Festival is evolving these traditions to celebrate community spirit and resilience, and inspire hope.
We invite you to celebrate with us by Parading in Place! Join the festivities by submitting your entries for the Porch Parade in May, or the Grand Petite Parade in June!
