PASADENA, Calif. (Aug. 20, 2020) Last month, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses® Association announced that, after thoughtful consideration and with state restrictions and guidelines in place as a result of COVID-19, we are unable to host the 2021 Rose Parade®.
In celebration of the New Year, the next Rose Parade is scheduled for Saturday, January 1, 2022 and will feature elements that were planned for the 2021 parade, including the theme “Dream. Believe. Achieve.” Bands that were selected to march in 2021 have been invited to participate in the 2022 Rose Parade and Bandfest. Floats that intended to roll down Colorado Blvd. this upcoming January 1 have been welcomed to join us in 2022. Equestrian units were in the application process and interested groups can apply next year. Decisions regarding the Royal Court and Rose Queen® are to be determined.
Also, the Board of Directors of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association approved amendments to the bylaws that will allow for the rollover of the Executive Committee, which includes President Bob Miller, who will remain the Association’s President for another year and will preside over the 2022 Rose Parade. All other members of the Executive Committee, including officers, vice presidents and at-large members, will maintain their current positions for the upcoming year and then resume their usual rotations in 2022 -2023 parade year.
Plans are underway for a reimagined America’s New Year Celebration® in 2021. We’re working in conjunction with our broadcast partners and sponsors and will announce a celebration with safe ways for those across the country and around the world to celebrate.
