About Us

Seventeen years ago the KCBS competition came to town adding excitement and the smell of BBQ to our small town celebration. Since our designation as Iowa’s Rose Capital in 1959, festivities have included a pageant, coronation of a Rose Queen in our beautiful Rose Garden, a parade, kid zone, street dance, and fireworks. Join the fun and happy Q’ing!
