Lab Days: Get Involved With Cal Poly Rose Float


If you’ve ever been interested in the Cal Poly Rose Float program, now is the time to get involved! 

Cal Poly Rose Float Lab Days are coming soon. During these days, you will be introduced to the program and learn more about this year’s efforts. The 2023 Tournament of Roses theme is “Turning the Corner,” and this year’s float design, the “Road to Reclamation,” features a fallen branch that will soon be a catalyst for new life!

Join the Cal Poly Rose Float program’s 74th campaign in the upcoming Pasadena Rose Parade — a tradition that goes back to 1949. A collaborative effort between students from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Pomona, the Cal Poly Rose Float program produces the only student-built float that rolls through the streets of Pasadena, Calif., in the Tournament of Roses Parade.
