Smell the Roses
Everything is coming up roses in Farmers Branch. Whether walking through the gardens located through the city or enjoying the street-scape, it is definitely time to stop and smell the roses.
With more than 500 different roses planted throughout the city, Farmers Branch is the perfect place to spend the afternoon taking in the small things in life – like old garden roses and modern hybrid teas.

Farmers Branch Rose Gardens are loving the weather! The cold and rain are the perfect combination for bigger and better blooms in the garden. Not so much for gardeners. Due to continuing weather patterns, the 2018 Celebration of Roses has been canceled.
Don't let this rain on your parade. The American Rose Society South Central District will be showcasing the most exquisite blooms in their Rose Show inside Farmers Branch City Hall from 12:30 to 4 pm.
We hope you will join us next at year's Celebration of Roses here in Farmers Branch, Texas. Though you don't have to wait until then to enjoy a stroll through the roses. Our garden gates are open to all creatures big and small all year round.
The Annual Celebration of Roses event is held to admire the beauty of the fall bloom season. Event attendees enjoy landscaping seminars among hundreds of blooming roses, rose garden tours, and a complimentary lunch with Bluegrass music.
