Saturday 6th July
On Rose Fair Saturday the whole town comes alive with a parade of floats at 11am and 2.00pm, organised by the Wisbech Round Table. The theme for 2019 is "100 years of history", and the floats will be celebrating major events that have occurred over the past 100 years across the world. There will be an additional prize for the best Wisbech historically themed float too.
Pride of The Parade
The idea behind Pride of the Parade is to provide a way for young people that have achieved something great to be recognised. Entries and nominations will need to explain why the individual deserves to be recognised for what they have achieved. This could be sporting or academic success, volunteering, supporting or caring for others – anything that demonstrates going the extra mile or perseverance.
Prizes will be awarded by the Round Table, which will be tailored to suit the winners. Entry to the competition is open to anyone of school age (6-16) with one senior winner (aged 12-16) and two joint junior winners (aged 6-12).
The closing date will be 1st June 2019.
The Ladies Circle are once again running the Rose Queen competition on behalf of Wisbech Round Table. If you're aged between 14 and 17 you can apply. Click HERE to visit Wisbech Ladies Circle Facebook page for an entry form. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
To enter, simply send 250-500 words why you should become the Rose Fair Queen 2019. Please note Wisbech Round Table and Ladies Circle will buy your dress and pay for your hair and make up to be done on the day. In return you will be requested to attend events throughout the year (such as open days with Ladies Circle).
There are many local attractions in the town:

What's on in the Local Churches
Come and help us celebrate our Rose Fair!
Spend a day in the Fens and visit one of the finest flower festivals in England, but there is also so much more to see and do in Wisbech, especially during Rose Fair.
There is also entertainment in Museum Square, exhibitions in the historic Wisbech Museum (one of the oldest museums in the country and well worth a visit in its own right!), and a display of historic vehicles in the car park. Full details of exhibitions, entertainment and other events are published in the Rose Fair programme.
