The Rose of Tralee International Festival is one of Ireland's largest and longest running festivals, celebrating 60 years in 2019! 


The heart of the festival is the selection of the Rose of Tralee which brings young women of Irish descent from around the world to County Kerry, Ireland for a global celebration of Irish culture.


The festival also includes street entertainment, carnival, live concerts, theater, circus, markets, funfair, fireworks and Rose Parades. 

Each year Texas chooses one woman to represent Texas at the Rose of Tralee festival.
