Denny Street, Tralee, Kerry,
One of Ireland's longest running family festivals celebrating 61 years in 2020. The Rose of Tralee International Festival is the only Irish festival that directly connects the global Irish community throughout the world.
The Rose of Tralee International Festival is a celebration of Irish culture and heritage held every year during the month of August. The five day festival culminates in the crowning of the Rose of Tralee, a year long ambassadorial role for this young Irish woman who represents Ireland the Festival both locally and around the world.
The Rose of Tralee Festival is supported by over 60 Rose Centres globally, in Ireland, the UK, Europe, the Middle East, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Each Centre sends a representative, a Rose, to the Festival. The Roses participate in Festival events, Rose parades and the two nights of live television broadcast to the nation by RTE. The second night's TV show culminates in the announcement of the Rose of Tralee and is one of the country's most watched TV programmes.
The Festival also includes five days and nights of entertainment, much of which is free. This includes live music (concert style on our big Denny Street stage, the Rose Dome, and in town centre pubs), Family Town for kids and kidults, three Rose parades, two huge firework displays, historical exhibitions, talks and day trips, a Gala Rose Ball, Fashion Show and the RTE televised live Rose of Tralee show to which tickets are available to the public to be part of the audience in the Rose Dome.
