We are planning for a Rosy Day Out… but follow us on Instagram just in case!
Christianson’s 18th Annual Rose Festival 2021
This year more than any other, we are looking forward to hosting this year’s annual Rose Festival. As last year’s Festival transformed into an exclusive online event with new, rose care and pruning videos, Instagram Takeovers, and a Live presentation on Instagram, this year looks like a hybrid of both the old and new: A Rosy Day Out and A Rosy Day In.
A Rosy Day Out included all of what you have experienced in the past; a community rose display in the Schoolhouse, an ice cream social in between morning and afternoon speakers, and strolling onto the freshly mowed grass to a shady spot beneath the Big Tent to listen to keynote speakers and rosebuds, Ciscoe Morris and John Christianson.
A Rosy Day In will be broadcasted from the Schoolhouse Rose Garden and will include new videos of helpful rose care gardening methods as well as a live webinar from under the Big Tent!
And, for those who can’t join us LIVE! on Instagram, don’t worry. We will be sharing John and Ciscoe’s presentation on-demand right here afterward, so you don’t miss a thing!
