The official opening of the Welland Rose Festival’s new office took place at the Seaway Mall, Sunday, March 4th at 11:00 AM. Mayor Campion cut the ribbon together with The Welland Rose Festival Mascot and queens.

Since its foundation in 1961, the Welland Rose Festival has brought together the people of Welland to celebrate our history, heritage and community. The Festival is comprised of several events, including the Coronation Ball, the Street Dance, the Art Exhibition, Days In The Park, the Children’s Fishing Derby, the Baby Show and the Grande Parade. The completely volunteer-run organization enlists the help of dedicated individuals, community partners and sponsors every year to make these events a success.
