Rose Festival Exhibit

Celebrate the Rose Festival with the City of Portland Archives. Portland’s love of the rose goes back to the late 1880s, when the first Rose Show was held in Georgiana Pittock’s backyard. These events continued to grow, and in 1907, the Portland community celebrated the first annual Rose Festival.  Explore the history and events the make this annual celebration so special. You can view the new exhibit in person at the Portland City Archives, or online: Visit us at 1800 SW 6th Avenue, Suite 550.
