The Pikes Peak Rose Society's Annual Rose Show

Saturday, September 9, 2017!!

Spencer's in Fountain

Contact Walt Kilmer at waltkilmer39@verizon.net for information.


  Everyone in the community/state is encouraged to bring his/her homegrown roses to compete

at the show. Trophies, prizes, and certificates may be awarded to the winning contenders.

​In order to compete, you must bring your roses to Spencer's in Fountain  between 7 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. 

The Prep Room opens at 6:00 a.m.

    All roses must be placed in vases that the Pikes Peak Rose Society provides (in other words, you cannot show

your roses in  your own vases, except in specific classes).

    An Ambassador-at-Large will be on hand to  help you prepare your roses for display. She will also help you fill out the  

    entry tag that must accompany your roses. You don't need any experience whatsoever to show your roses.

    All you need is roses that you've grown yourself--we will help you with the rest. 

    Beginning exhibitors usually display either a "rose-in-a-bowl" or a single rose in a bud vase.

    More advanced exhibitors have many options for showing their roses. A schedule is published for each show that lists all 

    the different ways roses may be presented, (e.g., you can arrange several roses in specific ways to compete in certain

   categories: for example:  "Most Fragrant Rose" or "English Box".)

   Schedules may be obtained from Carol Macon at Carol@maconsys.com, 719-576-7626  or by selecting the link at the top

   of  this page.  Carol can explain about how to compete with floral arrangements that include roses.

    PLEASE give exhibiting (rose showing) a try!  We think you will find it quite addictive, and we know  you'll enjoy the company

    of many fellow rose lovers.      ---- by Peg Beasley
