Wisbech Rose Fair

Wisbech Rose Fair

one of Britain’s finest flower festivals. the whole takes on a festive atmosphere including a parade of floats

Welcome to the Capital of the Fens and to one of the finest flower festivals in England - the Rose Fair is so much more than just a flower festival. 

 

Set in the unique Fenland landscape, the market town of Wisbech with its elegant Georgian architecture won 'Anglia in Bloom' Gold Awards each year between 2008 - 2014 and again in 2016 and was judged best large town / small city in the Anglia region each year in 2011 to 2014.

 

During Rose Fair the whole town takes on a festive atmosphere, celebrating its horticultural heritage. The jewel in the crown is the magnificent church of St Peter & St Paul - which celebrated it's 900th anniversary in 2011.

 

The Rose Fair began in 1963 when local rose growers sold rose buds in the Parish Church in aid of its restoration fund. The church still uses this wonderful occasion to raise funds for the upkeep of its ancient building, but over the years, the Rose Fair has grown into a Town Festival where other Wisbech churches and organisations open their doors and provide stalls and events to raise money for their causes.

 

On Rose Fair Saturday the whole town comes alive with a parade of floats at 11am and 2.00pm, organised by the Wisbech Round Table.  The theme for 2018 TBC

 

There is also entertainment in Museum Square, exhibitions in the historic Wisbech Museum (one of the oldest museums in the country and well worth a visit in its own right!), an art exhibition in Wisbech Castle and a display of historic vehicles in the car park.
