Pacific Rose Bowl Festival

The annual Pacific Rose Bowl Festival will take place in the Rogers Rose Garden from 13-16 November 2014. The four-day Festival is centered around the New Zealand Rose of the Year Trial.

The New Zealand Rose of the Year is one of only two Rose Trials in the Southern Hemisphere that are judged by public votes. There is also a Children’s Choice Award section. The roses in the trial are clearly marked and all you have to do is select your favourite five roses.

The Hamilton Rose Trial Grounds are linked to Australian, Japanese and Californian trial grounds through a friendship agreement initiated by Dr Sam McGredy.
