The Pacific Rose Bowl Festival takes place at Hamilton Gardens every November under the Pacific Accord of Friendship.

The legendary New Zealand rose breeder Dr Sam McGredy initiated the friendship affiliation with the common objective of promoting roses worldwide. The four-day festival is named after the trophy awarded to the winner of the New Zealand Rose of the Year Trials.

PubIic voting is the most unique aspect of these rose trials. The general public decide the winners by casting votes for their favourite 5 roses. A tally of all votes awards the winners. Children are invited to join the festivities too. All children’s votes are calculated to award the prestigious Children’s Choice Award.

2017 introduces a new category: Best Shrub Rose. Other awards include Best New Zealand Raised Rose, Best Hybrid Tea Rose, Best Climbing Rose, Best Floribunda, Most Fragrant Rose and Children’s Choice Award.
