Parade Event Marking

Parade EventIn 2008, Portland City Council passed an ordinance to increase equal access to the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade.

  • Beginning on Friday morning, June 7, 2019, parade attendees may reserve their spots in person along the parade route. Camping overnight along the parade route is permitted on Friday night only.
  • If you intend to camp on Friday, June 7, 2019, keep personal items and tents a few feet back from the curb, maintaining a walking path for pedestrians.
