The annual civic festival is planning for a full-blown celebration in 2022 after COVID-19 eases.

PMG FILE PHOTO - Small evetns will still be held this year.There will be no big outdoor events at the 2021 Portland Rose Festival, organizers announced on Tuesday, March 16.

Traditional events that engage the community are still planned, however. A festival queen will be crowned at a ceremony in June, Virtual Fleet Week is planned for June and the Rose Festival Treasure Hunt, Porch Parade and Roses for Hope celebration are still happening.

The Porch Parade started in 2020 and encourages neighbors to decorate their homes, yards and porches. Other cities around the county have copied the idea.

Leaders of the organization said they are planning for a full celebration in 2022, including a fireworks show on May 27, 2022. Other traditional outdoor summer events, like the Oregon Brewers Festival, have also canceled celebrations for 2021.
