Bloemfontein Rose Festival

The Bloemfontein Rose Festival showcases what the ‘City of Roses’ is all about and happens every year in October at various locations around Bloemfontein.This year the festival is being held from 22 to 23 October 2016. The festival was founded in 1976 as a result of local council members wanting to market Bloemfontein to the world. October was chosen as roses are best in bloom in the Free State in October, due the the cold winters and long warm summers. The bulk of the festivals acivities take place at the Loch Logan Waterfront, including mass flower displays by local nurseries and the official municipal rose festival display of the Dept of Parks and cemetries of the Mangaung Municipality. The Free State Rose Society’s champion Rose Cut Competition will also be hosted at the Waterfront, where approximately seven hundred entrants are expected to take part.
