The Rhode Island Rose Society invites you to their 24th Annual Rose Show on Saturday, June 10, from 1 – 3 p.m. at Shepherd of the Valley Church, 604 Seven Mile Road, Hope, RI.  

Stroll among the fragrances, colors and petals of hundreds of locally grown and exhibited roses from hybrid teas, to shrubs, to Old Garden Roses. The public can vote for the ‘Most Fragrant Rose.’ 

This year’s theme was chosen to honor those who have worked diligently to help us with all our Covid needs during the last three years.  View arrangements designed to celebrate each group. The six classes salute —

Doctors and Nurses

Police and Firefighters

Military Personnel



‘Hat’s Off to Zoom.’ 

Vote for your favorite in each category.

Consulting Rosarians will be available all afternoon to answer your rose care questions.

There will be a Rose Care Presentation at 2:00 pm.

ADMISSION IS FREE. More info about the event and the Rose Society:
