The Renmark Rose Festival started in 1994 and this year, as it celebrates its 26th anniversary, it will be renamed as the Renmark Riverland Rose Festival. This is to include and celebrate the other beautiful townships in the Riverland region, as well including Australia's mighty River Murray and to showcase the produce of the whole Riverland Region.
In the past, this major festival had been a 10-day event but this year, due to COVID restrictions, it will be a 4-day event instead, running from 16 October to 19 October 2020. However, the open garden attraction will still run for 10 days from 16 October 2020.
The Festival Fair will be held on Saturday 17 October from 9am to 2pm at the Jarrett Memorial Gardens, James Avenue, Renmark. There will be many stalls at the fair featuring crafts, plants, food and many goodies of the Riverland.
The floral display will be at the Renmark Institute and the open gardens will be at various locations across the Riverland's major townships of Renmark, Berri, Waikerie, Loxton and Barmera.
For lovers and enthusiasts of roses, this festival is not to be missed. This is Australia's premier and largest Rose Festival. For more information and a full program of the festival, please visit their website.
