About the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl
This iconic New Year's Day event will mark the celebration of a new start to 2021. It is one of the world's most celebrated and longest-running traditions, with millions of people tuning in from around the globe to experience the pageantry and excitement. The Tournament of Roses showcases many wonderful floats, bands and equestrian units as they travel along the five-and-a-half mile route. The Rose Parade has been a part of Pasadena, California since 1890 and will be celebrated in its 134th year on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2023. This year’s theme is "Dreaming of a Better Year" and serves as an inspirational reminder to stay hopeful for what lies ahead. The Rose Parade is the perfect way to start off the new year and celebrate a fresh beginning. From incredible floats to spirited marching bands, there's something for everyone as we come together for this amazing event!

The Rose Bowl Game will be played at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2023. This time-honored tradition has been a part of college football since 1902 and will celebrate its 109th year in Pasadena. The Rose Bowl Game pits the champions from the Pac-12 Conference and Big Ten Conference against each other in one of the most historic bowl games in college football history. As we look forward to cheering on our favorite teams, we also look forward to seeing the pageantry and excitement that comes along with the Rose Bowl Game. It is sure to be an unforgettable experience for all fans!

The days leading up to the 134th Rose Parade presented by Honda and 109th Rose Bowl Game are filled with family-friendly events, including Equestfest, the Bandfest, and A Salute to the Armed Forces.
