For months, the Festival Office has been inundated with enquiries from eager festival fans asking when they can get their hands on the much sought-after tickets for the various Dome Events. The Rose Ball sells out earlier each year, while this year’s Fashion Show will have some exciting new dimensions that will be announced in the coming weeks. We are delighted to stage the highly entertaining Celebration of Roses Night once again. This event will do exactly what it says on the tin – celebrate our Roses, their families and our Rose Centres throughout the world.”Festival-goers are reminded that they can also look forward to over 70 hours of FREE entertainment during this year’s Rose of Tralee Street Festival.Dancing with the Stars winner Jake Carter, X Factor Finalists the Price Brothers, Irish music stars The High Kings and acclaimed Irish band Hermitage Green will all perform FREE concerts in the town centre during this year’s Festival.
