Once again this summer, local artists will showcase their handcrafted pieces alongside the natural splendor of The Oregon Garden, giving guests an opportunity to not only enjoy but also to purchase new pieces for their home and garden! There is no additional fee for enjoying our Art in the Garden event: the art can be viewed at any time during open hours for the duration of the exhibit.

Guests are invited to attend the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 29th, 2021 from 12:00pm-4:00pm and help the Garden kick off another year of Art in the Garden. Take the “art walk” and chat with the featured artists who will be available to talk about their installations and inspiration. Guests 21+ can enjoy complimentary wine tasting from Willamette Valley Vineyards and an array of food offerings from Little Leaf Café. Our Opening Reception is available to all garden guests with regular admission. Check the Oregon Garden Facebook page for up-to-date details.

In 1938, the Royal Rosarian Rose Garden Contest was established as the first sponsored, citywide event to honor the rose, the “Queen of flowers.” The contest was so popular that it immediately became an annual event. The Royal Rosarians are committed to continually improving the contest to showcase the best amateur rose gardens and commercial plantings in Portland, the City of Roses. The contest promotes greater appreciation of growing roses, honoring those citizens who help beautify Portland through their rose growing efforts and upholds the signature Royal Rosarian slogan “For You A Rose In Portland Grows!” The Royal Rosarians encourage all rose growers in the Portland Metropolitan Area to enter this contest.
