The 2020 Fall Grand Prix Rose Show will be held during the Nashville Rose Society regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Sunday, September 12, 2021, in the Potter Room at Cheekwood. The Grand Prix is a rose show that is held at a NRS meeting and its purpose is to give members a chance to learn about and practice exhibiting roses.
The show will have two sections – Advanced Exhibitors and Novice Exhibitors. A Novice Exhibitor is a person who has never won a Blue Ribbon in an ARS sanctioned Rose Show with the exception of the Novice category. Having the two sections will give new exhibitors experience showing their roses with fairer competition.
Please note: The NRS Grand Prix rose shows are not sanctioned by the ARS.
A grooming room will be set up at 1:00pm. All entries must be placed on the tables by 2:00pm and judging will start at this time.

Since we are unable to hold an actual rose show this year, members of the Nashville Rose Society were encouraged to have some fun and take photos of their roses to enter in our first virtual rose show. This is not an ARS sanctioned rose show. NRS virtual certificates will be awarded.
The entries for the Nashville Rose Society Virtual Rose Show have been judged. See the results of the 115 entries in 11 classes. Take a stroll through our virtual hall of roses and enjoy the beauty of America’s favorite flower grown and submitted by members of the Nashville Rose Society.
