Goostrey Rose Festival

This annual event upholds a tradition dating back more than a century and is the highlight of the year for many in this South Cheshire village.

A colourful procession of floats featuring over 300 children and adults kicks off the celebrations which take place on the last Saturday in June. Residents and visitors alike also enjoy the crowning of the Rose Queen, maypole dancing and a fête on the school field. The day is rounded off by a lively ceilidh.

At one time nearly every village in the area held a similar Rose Festival but today only a handful survive.  However, thanks to the support of villagers, Goostrey Rose Festival is still going strong and each year attracts hundreds of visitors from across the country.
