Rose Queens (1905 to 2018)

Choosing a Rose Queen and her court has been a tradition for more than 90 years.

Every year, late in September or early in October, a competition is organized to select a Pasadena-area girls (ages 17 to 21) for the honor of being crowned Queen of the Tournament of Roses and six princess who are members of her “Royal Court“.

The winners i.e., the Rose Queen and her Royal Court ride on a float in the Rose Parade and prior to the parade they carry out various activities to promote the Tournament, mainly during its duration and prelude.

Rose Queen and her Royal Court for Rose Parade 2018 is yet to be announced !

Last year, Victoria Castellanos was announced as the Rose Queen for the Rose Parade 2017.
