The Annual Rose Show and Festival is celebrating 96 years! This three-day event is held in beautiful historic Downtown Thomasville and has been a southwest Georgia tradition since the 1920s! What started in 1921 as a display in Neel’s Department Store organized with only $25 (won by a group of garden club ladies who won 1st place in the state fair for their display of locally grown vegetables and fruits) has now grown to a 3-day festival with over 25,000 visitors! Join in the fun and festivities! Enjoy roses, roses and more roses, plus four flower shows, a children’s parade, a larger and more exciting Rose Parade, a street dance featuring the Swingin’ Medallions, fireworks, fantastic food, a car and truck show and family friendly activities in Paradise Park. We’re pulling out all the stops to make this year the best Rose Show and Festival yet!
