State Center Rose Festival

State Center, IA 50247

Held annually since 1958, the State Center Rose Festival celebrates the history and charm of our beautiful town and historic Rose Garden.  Nestled near the center of the state, our town is the perfect setting to be known as the “Rose Capitol of Iowa” and host to this tradition.  Each year during the third weekend in June, the town comes alive as current residents host those who have moved away, those who are just passing through, and anyone interested in a weekend full of fun, family-centered events.
