Tournament of Roses Guide
Here’s everything you need to know about an American treasure, the New Year’s extravaganza surrounding the 134th Rose Parade presented by Honda and the 109th Rose Bowl Game presented by Capital One Venture X.
Since 1890, Pasadena has hosted visitors from all over the world to celebrate the New Year with an action-packed event line up that feature colorful florals and sporting events. What once started as a celebration of the beautiful weather, vibrant winter blooms, chariot races, jousting, foot races and tug-of-war, has become an iconic American tradition experienced live in person, by hundreds of thousands, and broadcast to televisions across the country.
The 134th Rose Parade presented by Honda and the 109th Rose Bowl Game presented by Capital One Venture X is surrounded by festive events across Pasadena, such as volunteer opportunities for float decorating, Bandfest, Floatfest, and Equestfest.
Nothing beats experiencing it all in person, so plan your family's New Year’s trip to Pasadena with this guide. If you need some extra help getting around, call into our friendly Visitor Hotline.
