Hosted by Nashville Rose Society
The Nashville Rose Society’s 2022 Music City Rose Show will be held in the beautiful setting of Cheekwood Estate & Gardens. The two-day event brings focus to this popular and beloved flower. The show will take place in Botanic Hall the first weekend of Cheekwood Harvest, Saturday, September 17, from 1 to 5 p.m. and Sunday, September 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“The Nashville Rose Society is excited to host the 2022 Music City Rose Show at Cheekwood and invites the public to attend,” says Ron Daniels, Co-President of The Nashville Rose Society. “It’s an opportunity for us to share our passion for growing roses with our Middle Tennessee neighbors. I hope folks will come to the show to be inspired and to learn that really anyone can grow beautiful roses.”
More than 60 of the most accomplished, award-winning rosarians across Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Alabama and Georgia will compete for awards in multiple categories – from hybrid teas, floribundas, and miniatures to shrub roses and old garden roses – displaying hundreds of beautiful roses in a variety of colors and fragrances. There will also be categories for best rose photography, best rose arrangements and for roses that have been named after country music stars, such as Dolly Parton, Lynn Anderson, Miranda Lambert, Johnny Cash, Alabama, Reba McEntire and more.
