Upcoming Events

Tuesday, March 14, 7:30pm

Floral Hall at VanDusen Botanical Garden


Our Rose Auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year and takes place annually at our March meeting.


Dozens of rose bushes will be up for grabs at one of the liveliest events of the year. Plan on getting there early to check out this year's selection of lovelies -- as well as the competition -- as members prepare to kick off -- and dig in --to a new gardening season!








Open Gardens



Every year, many of our members throughout the Lower Mainland open their gardens to fellow VRS members to visit and enjoy the fruits of their labor and rosey inspirations.


The 2016 tour took us to some of the most beautiful gardens in our area; and with the Summer weather consistently hot and dry throughout, our roses were at their very best. Some might even say they rose to the occasion!


Plans for this year's tour are already underway, so make sure your Membership is up-to-date so you'll be ready to come 'ooh' and 'aah' with us as each weekend's schedule is announced.

The Vancouver Rose Society will proudly host its 65th Rose Show in 2018, providing exhibitors and admirers alike a grand opportunity to celebrate the ‘Queen of the Garden’.


With hundreds of home-grown and exquisitely fragrant beauties on display, this premiere biennial event will be held next in June 2018 at VanDusen Garden in the Floral Hall.
