The Grand Finale!

By Brenda Viney, Vancouver Rose Society

What began as a dream turned into reality seven years ago when the Vancouver Rose Society decided to take on the WORLD in a bid for the 15th triennial Convention of the World Federation of Rose Societies.  It’s hard to believe so many years of planning are just about to come to a grand finale!

The World Rose Convention is attracting close to 550 international rosarians coming from far and wide to the Westin Bayshore Hotel to engage in a week of camaraderie, lectures, tours and special events…all to celebrate the rose. The Convention takes place June 18-24, 2009.

The World Rose Festival is a one-time only, fabulous garden show inviting members of the gardening public from all over British Columbia, Washington, and the World to come to the new Vancouver Convention Centre for the ULTIMATE ROSE EXPERIENCE!  The Festival takes place Friday, Saturday & Sunday, June 19-20-21, 2009.
