Dateline: San José, CA June 2020 – The originally postponed 13th
Annual Rose, White and Blue
Parade & Festival will be cancelled this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Though
the Executive Board remained optimistic to hold a September 2020 iteration of this tradition of
showcasing residents, businesses and organizations of San José and the greater Bay Area in
celebrating diversity, public spirit, and our floral/agricultural heritage, it is clear that the global
impact of COVID-19 will continue for the foreseeable future.
Based on the guidelines set by the California Governor and the Health Department of Santa
Clara County, the Rose, White and Blue Parade & Festival Board has decided to cancel in-person
events until 2021. The health and well-being of our community remains our strongest priority;
cancelling this year’s festivities is the right thing to do and is in line with the scientific approach
that has been put in place by the state’s governor and health officials to fight COVID-19.
We hope that the community instead joins us for an online celebration on Saturday, July 4,
2020 on our facebook page @RoseWhiteBlueParade. We encourage all community residents,
businesses, organizations, and artists to participate by photographing and/or filming
themselves performing, or sending well-wishes to the community. For the full set of guidelines
