125th Annual Luther Burbank Rose Parade & Festival @ Downtown Santa Rosa, Ca
May 18 @ 9:00 am

Though the famed horticulturist Luther Burbank took part in the event as early as 1914, the annual tradition began in 1894 with the first Rose Carnival.  It continued until 1926 when it was canceled due to Burbank’s death, shortly before the festival.  A longer hiatus was observed during the World Wars.

The Junior Chamber of Commerce ‘Jaycees’ revived the event in 1950, renaming it in honor of Burbank. It has been held every year since and always with a parade. Many elements have changed over the years. The original affairs offered the grandeur of coronation balls and the pageantry of royal courts; later versions offered regattas, bicycle and running races, fireworks and tennis. The parade, though, has always been the central activity.?

Since its rebirth in 1950 the parade has become an annual event on the third Saturday in May, drawing a strong showing of local school marching bands, floats built by community and service organizations, equestrian teams, and units honoring local veterans.?

Festival activities, particularly fun and games for children, became a larger part of the day with the 100th anniversary event in 1994. The Luther Burbank Rose Parade & Festival became a formal tax-exempt corporation in 1994 after the last of its parent organizations disbanded. Community members, determined to keep the annual tradition alive, formed a 12-member board of directors. The volunteer group works year-round to produce the event, which meets an annual budget of $100,000 through sponsorships, grants, and parade and vendor fees.

Old Grove Festival @ Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve
Sep 14 @ 4:30 pm – 9:30 pm

September 14 & 15, 4:30 PM – 9:00 PM

The Annual Old Grove Festival takes place at the historic Redwood Forest Theater in Armstrong Redwoods SNR in September. This beautiful open-air theatre was built in the 1930s. Concerts and theatrical events took place there for decades until the theater was closed in the 1980s out of concern for natural resource protection. In 2006, the theater was reopened for limited use by Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods (Stewards) and California State Parks. Event reservations are limited to alleviate environmental impacts and due to parking limitations.

The Old Grove Festival features an outstanding variety of musical and theatrical productions that help Stewards raise funds to support our educational and stewardship programs, as well as continued advocacy for all State Parks. The festival also benefits the Save the Redwoods League, a nonprofit organization that protects and restores redwood forests and connects people with their peace and beauty so these wonders of the natural world flourish.
