60th Annual Rose Festival at State Center


Music and Iowa craft beer all night with all proceeds supporting both the State Center Development Association Depot Restoration Project and the Rose Festival. Our event features the Iowa Craft Beer Tent serving 12 Iowa craft beers and Busch Light from 3:00 pm to Midnight. Starting at 8:00 pm, central Iowa's favorite band "Grand Marshall" will get the party going with amazing music for all to enjoy! Free will donations accepted for the band.

Held annually since 1958, the State Center Rose Festival celebrates the history and charm of our beautiful town and historic Rose Garden. Nestled near the center of the state, our town is the perfect setting to be known as the “Rose Capitol of Iowa” and host to this tradition. Each year during the third weekend in June, the town comes alive as current residents host those who have moved away, those who are just passing through, and anyone interested in a weekend full of fun, family-centered events. Visit our event schedule pages for a full listing of all the events!

When: Friday, June 15th. 3pm-12am

Where: State Center Train Depot - Corner of Main St & 3rd Ave S, State Center, IA 50247
