Portland Rose Festival

Celebrating clean and green traditions and a clean energy, carbon-free future

Join us for this year’s Portland Rose Festival!

Since its inception in 1907, PGE has been helping celebrate the traditions of the Festival.

Each year, PGE volunteers head out onto the parade route of the PGE/SOLVE Starlight Parade to help keep the Festival one of the cleanest and greenest in the world. We’re back at it again this year, and instead of trucks, our volunteers will us bikes to help distribute the trash bags used to clean up the parade route, eliminating vehicle emissions. And that’s not all. We’ll once again power the rides and booths at CityFair with PGE renewable energy.

Check out our electric vehicle parade entry

Speaking of carbon-free, don’t miss our PGE/Starlight Parade entry – An EV for Everyone – which will feature electric vehicles and TriMet’s new electric bus, powered by PGE Clean Wind. Electric vehicles are an important part of Oregon’s clean energy future. They’re not only fun-to-drive and have a range of up to 150 miles between charges, fuel is clean and green and more cost-effective than gas.
