Welcome to the Jackson County Rose Festival, the premiere community event

 of Jackson, Michigan.  Now in our 61st year, the Jackson County Rose Festival celebrates The Rose City.  Known for its abundant and beautiful parks, lakes and waterways,  recreational resources and of course roses, Jackson celebrates heritage and history.   For decades, Ella Sharp Park, community and residential gardens have cultivated the rose.  In 1931, the rose was chosen as the official flower of Jackson and we became known as “The Rose City”.  In 1958,  The Jackson County Rose Festival was inaugurated with The Jackson County Rose Parade, followed by The Jackson County RoseQueen Pageant in 1960.  Over the years, various Rose Festival events complement the Parade and Pageant.    Enjoy the beauty of Jackson, the rose and The Jackson County Rose Festival!
