It may not be spring, but the flowers are still sprouting here in Texas! The Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham will be hosting their 32nd Annual Fall Festival of Roses Nov. 1-3. Come learn about all things roses and gardening in this central Texas climate, and, of course, view some truly beautiful roses. The festival will be held at the Antique Rose Emporium’s Display Gardens.
The weekend will kick off on Friday morning at 9:45 a.m. with a brief welcome by Antique Rose Emporium owner and founder Mike Shoup, followed by the first session of the weekend at 10 a.m. Free lectures will take place every hour or so the entire weekend, covering a range of topics such as how to go from “Clueless to Gardener” and “Roses in Our Southern Gardens Today.” This festival is bound to educate and delight rose gardening enthusiasts of all skill levels. It culminates on Sunday, Nov. 3, with tours of the rose fields at the Antique Rose Emporium followed by tours of Peckerwood Gardens in Hempstead, just down the road.
The lectures are free, and there will be drawings every day for gorgeous free roses. There’s no need to worry about where to grab lunch either, because a food truck will be on site on Friday and Saturday. Saturday’s sessions will also end with hors d’oeuvres and drinks at the Pavilion from 4-6:00 p.m.
So don’t miss this opportunity to relish in some of the best roses and hear from some of the best rose gardeners Texas has to offer at the 32nd Annual Fall Festival of Roses!
