22nd Rose Festival

The Rose Festival has evolved into a major event and today runs for 10 days, spans towns across the Riverland and provides a range of events and attractions. 2016 sees the Rose Festival celebrate it's 22nd year.

The Festival was the brainchild of Eithne Sidhu who collaborated with David Ruston to run the very first “Rose Week” in 1994. Eithne saw it as an event to bring people into the town and to promote Renmark as the Rose Capital of Australia. I know that if she were here today to see what the Festival has become she would be very proud. Visit her memorial garden in the Jarrett Gardens.

Rose Gardens in Renmark's Streetscape

The Renmark Township's Rose Gardens provide a spectacular backdrop and are immaculately presented during the Rose Festival thanks to the Renmark Paringa Coundil. There are 51 garden beds consisting of in excess of 3,500 rose bushes spread throughout the town and it is well worth taking a walking tour to discover them.

Floral Display

The theme this year for the floral displays is 'For the Love of Roses'. Located at the Renmark Institute, the floral arrangements are created by local amateurs who all love to create anything from the simple to simply stunning displays. A beautiful floral carpet created by The Evenin Star Quilters and Volunteers will be a feature. 'Simply Mine' Crafts and Gifts on sale.
Children's Flower Arrangements are also on display. See the program for details.
