What to expect..

- Roses, roses, and more roses
As usual we expect to see a huge number of entries. Expect to see almost every variety possible and every colour under the sun.
- A chance to showcase your talent
The beauty of our rose festival is that anybody can enter. Whether you're a beginner or have been showing around the country, we'll welcome you with open arms.
- A day out at Wales's favourite attraction
With over 600,000 visitors a year, St Fagans is a Welsh favourite. Spread out over 100-acres of land which houses over 40 period buildings which have been relocated, brick-by-brick, from locations all over Wales.
History of Rose Society Wales
We've come a long way since we started back in 1965. We were a small, new society in an ocean full of big players from cities such as Bristol, Swansea & Cardiff. Our future was uncertain but with some hard work and determination our society has blossomed into what we are today. Gone are the days where there were several societies per city, today we are the last remaining rose society in the whole of Wales.
Our members have exhibited at shows in California, The Channel Islands, and given lectures in places such as China & New York. Since 2015 our rose festival has been held in Cardiff, the capital of Wales, where we attract visitors from all over the world - including the USA & Australia. We hope that you will join us on this journey, and if you share our passion please do visit us 2nd-3rd July this year.
