Texas Rose Festival
The Texas Rose Festival is Tyler’s premier event. This three-day mid-October festival began in 1933 as a means to bring the community together and to honor the city’s history with the rose. The centerpiece of the festival is the selection of the rose queen and her court, all of whom embark on a parade through town wearing elaborate dresses. Along with the parade and coronation of the rose queen, the festival is made up of other events, including rose shows and guided tours through the Tyler Municipal Rose Garden. Admission for the select individual events are available through the Texas Rose Festival’s website.
