Goostrey Rose Festival is a village tradition dating back to 1906 and is held on the last Saturday of June each year. In 2020 it will be on 27th June. The day comprises a procession of decorated floats with many children and adults of the village in costume. The procession ends at the school field where the Rose Queen and Rosebud Queen are crowned in a traditional ceremony. The day continues with entertainments on the field along with various side-shows and stalls.
Rose Day is an important and popular event in the village calendar and is enjoyed by villagers and visitors alike. The 2020 Rose Queen and Rosebud Queen will be chosen on Saturday 7 March, the same day the committee organise a party to say thank you to the infants for taking part in Rose Day.
