Since 1890, the Tournament of Roses has produced America’s New Year Celebration, bringing the traditions of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game to Pasadena and the world for nearly 130 years.

Each New Year’s Day, the entire world turns its attention to Pasadena, home of the Rose Parade® and Rose Bowl Game®. It’s a celebration that’s more than a century old—a festival of flowers, music and sports unequaled anywhere in the world. We have scheduled wonderful activities around the 134th annual Tournament of Roses Parade, including decorating one of the floats, attending Bandfest, visiting the Academy Awards Museum and Warner Brothers Studios. There is an option to purchase game tickets if you want to root for your favorite team! This tour is so much fun and we know you will take lasting memories with you!
