Rose Festival

27th Rose Festival June 10th, 2017

Horticulture and Heritage of the Maplewood Neighborhood

“In the center of the city of Rochester, above the bank of the river which as shaped the region’s history, lies a jewel of a garden. The roses there are an oasis of beauty and the result of decades of planning and care.”

From Duane Reid’s history of the Maplewood Rose Garden

Held each year in June, the peak of the rose blooming season, this rose-colored celebration focuses on the beauty of over 300 rose varieties located at the historic Maplewood Rose Garden.

In addition to the beauty of over 5,000 roses, the event will include two days filled with horticultural workshops and demonstrations by Rochester’s top gardeners and landscape professionals and hands-on gardening/landscaping activities for adults and kids. The Maplewood Rose Festival is sponsored by the Maplewood Neighborhood Association and the City of Rochester.
