2012 National Rooster Crow Weekend

June 29th - July 1st

"A Century of Hometown Pride"
Since 1953, Rogue River has held the National Rooster Crow Championship the last Saturday in June. The community event has grown into a 3 day event, kicking off Friday night featuring a band with free entertainment. Saturday morning is the well known "Rooster Crow Parade".

After the parade, there is a whirl wind of activities, arts and crafts, food booths, a special kids area, and of course the National Rooster Crow Contest and Human Crow Contest. After the winners circle, head over to the Woodville Museum Gazebo for another free concert that afternoon.

This year's bands:
Friday Night Band: “Afterburner” from 6pm to 9pm at the Woodville Museum Gazebo on Oak & 2nd Street

Saturday Afternoon Band: “Key of Three” in the Woodville Museum Gazebo on Oak & 2nd Street
