There will be two educational Dallas City Tours, one in the morning to the Sixth Floor Museum which chronicles the assassination and legacy of John F. Kennedy and the second tour after lunch to the Dallas Arts District and your choice of either the Dallas Museum of Art or the world renowned Nasher Sculpture Center Both tours will repeat on Saturday, Oct. 14th.

Also on Friday, a special bus tour is available to the magnificent Tyler Municipal Rose Garden in Tyler, Texas. If you have never seen the 38,000 roses bushes of the Tyler garden in full bloom, you simply must take this opportunity to do so. It is a site to behold! Box lunches will be provided.

Sunday will feature the first of two Garden Tours at the "Texas Two Step with Roses". On Sunday, you will visit three special Dallas area private gardens and the beautiful Dallas Arboretum A gourmet box lunch will be provided during your tour. Upon returning to the hotel, we will award the Rose Show trophies and close the rose show. Following the trophy awards, Stephen Scanniello, noted author and President of the Heritage Rose Foundation will present the Heritage Rose Garden at the American Rose Center in Shreveport plans. Stephen is designing and re-developing the garden to be a beautiful and educational display of important heritage roses. Stephen’s program will be immediately followed by the ARS Membership Meeting which is especially significant at this change of leadership convention.

On Monday, we tour Fort Worth area gardens highlighted by Mike Becker’s garden of 700 roses and the Fort Worth Botanical Garden . Gourmet box lunches will again be provided. Be sure you do not miss the nationally renowned Japanese Garden at the Fort Worth Botanical garden. The admission fee is included in the tour.

For those who still want more… Beginning Tuesday morning 10/17, we offer a great Two-Day Post Tour available on a limited basis. Fort Worth is known as "where the west begins". The Post Tour will explore the country west of Fort Worth and give the participants an up close and personal taste of West Texas. We will dine at the exclusive five star Rough Creek Lodge in the middle of nowhere, visit the scenic Fossil Rim Wildlife Park , shop the square in historic Granbury , have wine and cheese in the wonderful private garden of the Brazos House overlooking Lake Granbury, eat dinner on the patio of Stringfellow’s on the square, laugh and be entertained at Granbury Live , visit two very unique and surprising public gardens starting with breakfast at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford and Lunch at Clark Gardens in Mineral Wells. We wind up the tour with a wine tasting/dinner at the Cross Timbers Winery in Grapevine before returning to the InterContential Dallas hotel Wednesday evening 10/18.


If you are an aviation buff, on Saturday morning take a break from all the roses and visit not one, but two, great aircraft museums. Our "Plane Nuts" tour will visit BOTH the new Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field and the Cavanaugh Flight Museum at Addison Airport. You will love these two wonderful collections of historic aircraft and artifacts.

Saturday Evening promises to be a real Texas barn burner! We’ll take you to the Shindig at Eddie Deen’s Ranch for a fun filled evening in a replicated Texas frontier town and saloon. Eddie Deen is the "Barbecue Caterer" to President Bush, catering both Washington balls and Crawford Ranch parties. You’ll not soon forget your evening of all you can eat barbecue, dance hall darlings, quick draw artists, armadillo races and "two stepping" to a great (versatile) western band.

Sunday evening will be filled with the pomp and circumstance of the Pre-Inaugural Ball (black tie & boots optional) in the magnificent Malachite Showroom of the InterContinental Dallas. This exciting evening will be a Grand Seated Buffet of heavy hors d’oeuvres and dancing honoring the American Rose Society’s Incoming and Outgoing Officers. Come prepared to party and dance the evening away as we celebrate the accomplishments of those who have lead the ARS the last three years and the promise of those that will lead us into the future.

Monday afternoon when you return to the hotel, you will be treated to two very special programs. The first is the "Amazing Botanical Art of Redoute", a dynamic audio visual presentation by Mr. Barney Lipscomb, Leonhardt Chair of Texas Botany, Botanical Research Institute of Texas. The second will be a lecture by Ms. Dawn Eagle, editor of the "New Zealand Rose Annual" and editor/publisher of "Find That Rose In New Zealand".

Monday evening will bring the exciting climax of this fabulous rose weekend, the ARS Triennial Installation and Awards Banquet installing President Elect Steve Jones, the newly elected Vice President, and the Regional Directors who will lead the ARS for the next three years. The ARS Installation and Awards Banquet will provide a regal and festive conclusion to a most remarkable convention.


On Friday Oct. 13 we will offer a full Consulting Rosarian School for rosarians from around the country seeking either their initial C R accreditation or their ongoing C R audit credits.

The first ever EarthKind™ Environmental Landscape System Seminar for ARS Rosarians headlines Saturday events. This FREE seminar will throughly describe the Texas Cooperative Extension (part of Texas A & M University) EarthKind™ Rose and EarthKind™ Soil Management Systems. This environmentally friendly growing system is the result of over 10 years of scientific, replicated, random block studies on hundreds of disease resistant roses to identify those specific cultivars that will grow with absolute minimal care. This comprehensive training program features lectures by Dr Steven George, the originator of the EarthKind™ Rose research and other key participants in the EarthKind™ project. This seminar’s training is essential to participate in the upcoming National EarthKind™ Rose Trials, the largest scientific rose trial ever conducted anywhere in the world!

During an extended lunch break, you can join a special EarthKind™ Field Trip to a local EarthKind™ Display Garden. All Field Trip participants will receive a box lunch, a FREE National EarthKind™ Trials test rose and a FREE copy of the EarthKind™ Environmental Landscape System Manual which to be introduced at this convention. After lunch, the EarthKind™ Seminar continues with presentations by Mike Shoup of the Antique Rose Emporium, Mark Chamblee of Chamblee Roses and Gaye Hammond, President of the Houston Rose Society.


Bring your children to "Texas Two Step With Roses"! Saturday morning, we will have the first ever YOARS (Youth of ARS) National Convention Even open to youth 8 to 11 years-of-age attending the convention and local children from the Dallas community. Children attending will be invited to enter a rose from home in the Special YOARS Class in the National Rose Show. If a child can’t bring a rose, we will have a supply of roses available so that EVERYONE gets to enter the show. Help in entering will be provided by adult rosarians in a special preparation area just for the children. After the Youth entries close, a fast paced, rosy program will begin. This fun-filled, hands-on, rose experience will include a show and smell of different roses, how to pot and plant them and rosy crafts. Part I of the YOARS activity will run from 9:00 A.M. until 12:00 p.m.. Part I of the activity will end at 12:00 noon and the children must be picked up by their parents at that time.

Parents are welcome to register their children to accompany them on the EarthKind™ Field Trip and Lunch from 12:00 until 2:00 p.m. The YOARS Activity Part II will resume at 2:00 p.m. for those children who wish to participate in guided walking tours for children through the Rose Show. Every child will leave the YOARS Activity at 12:00 noon (or 3:00 p.m.) with a Children’s Rose Activity Manual, a rose they potted, a craft item they made, a National Rose Show Ribbon and possibly a TROPHY from the rose show!


Saturday will start early for exhibitors with the prep area for the rose show opening at 12:00 A.M. Saturday 10/14. Entries will close at 9:30 A.M.. Exhibitors will appreciate the huge prep area and rose show in the 25,000 sq foot Crystal Ballroom.
