Celebrating 94 years, the Annual Thomasville Rose Show and Festival blooms April 23-25, 2015. A Southwest Georgia tradition since the early 1920s, the free family-friendly festival encompasses the Rose Show, which presents contemporary and heirloom roses against a backdrop budding with thousands of the blooms; the Rose Parade, known for its flowery floats; the Street Dance, which brings out boppers young and old (featuring the Atlanta Rhythm Section); plus live music, arts and crafts, a car show, Southern-style festival foods, children's fun and games and more. Continuing a festival tradition, the Thomas County Museum of History and Lapham-Patterson House Museum offer special exhibits about Thomasville's Victorian history and the Rose Show tradition. This annual spring festival garners rave reviews from visitors and is consistently awarded Top Event designations from tourism industry partners. Visit for event schedule and details.
