Rose Auction - November Meeting  
This is our biggest fund raiser of the year - and it's a lot of fun as well.  We bring out our own roses for sale, plus it's a great way for TRS Members to get a good selection of new roses at a fantastic price.  So, make a list of your plant needs - bring some friends - and lots of cash to support TRS !

Annual Rose Show - June

Each June we run an ARS authorized Rose Show in Tacoma, where growers & arrangers show their stuff. A group of regional ARS judges visit each class in the show, agree on the quality of each entry, & decide on a best-in-class winner.
Trophies & Certificates are handed out to the winners in a grand ceremony at the end of the day, with a picture taken with the current President of TRS as a memento of their hard work.

Summer Picnic - August  

Our biggest Member potluck on a great afternoon of food, fun, and games.


Help Us Teach!

We work year round with the public at different venues, demonstrating & educating about our rose passion.

Tacomans have been celebrating roses and the beauty and joy they bring to us for more than 100 years. 

It is regularly mentioned that the Tacoma Rose Society, having been in continuous existence since 1911, is the oldest rose society in Washington State. 

But, by 1911 The City of Tacoma had already been featuring rose activities for almost 20 years . . . .
