2022 Broken Arrow Rose Show
Let’s Celebrate Our Roses! Cash prizes & Ribbons!
Did you know that the Rose Festival Rose Show is a recreation of the early Rose Shows held in Broken Arrow starting in 1924? The local paper reported that almost every home ‘humble or aristocratic’ had a rose garden. We were known as “The City of Roses and Sparkling Spring Waters.” Help us commemorate our return to this beautiful part of Broken Arrow history!
Our Rose Show is a fun event. Whether you’re a beginning rose grower or an expert…this is the perfect place to showplace your roses.
What to do –
Bring your roses, as many as you like. Bring your friend’s & neighbor’s roses and enter under their names. No need to know the name or type of rose. We have vases for single roses. Your roses must be grown in your yard, not bought at a store. Pick up your roses and vases by 2:30 pm.
