Everyone is welcome at Live on Green Pasadena! From our Entertainment Stages buzzing with live performances to our talented Chefs on the Culinary Stage to our celebration of all things Roses — the Game, the Floats, the Equestrians, the Flowers, the Bands — and our 50,000 square foot Family Fun Zone, it is all there for your discovery and enjoyment.
Join us on Saturday afternoon as we host a FREE thank you concert by Phillip Phillips, winner of Fox’s American Idol and a soulful vocalist with a bent toward mixing acoustical material with jam-oriented rock. This concert is being put on as a thank you to all who are part of an on-going program to educate and illuminate the dangers of food insecurity in our communities.
In honor of the Rose Parade theme, Melody of Life, we have pulled out all the stops. Everyone is welcome as we Celebrate with Spirit in our Power of Music Pavilion featuring history, trivia, memorabilia and interactive exhibits all about music, instruments, global influences, and how they impact our lives. Wear your dancing shoes so you can show your moves on our dance floor and try your hand at karaoke in between the fabulous performances on our Crescendo Stage.
Our outdoor Let Us Entertain You stage, presented by The Paseo, will feature show-stopping dance, mesmerizing martial arts demonstrations and a bevy of incredible musicians and singers, and even theatrical performance. Sunday highlights include performances from the Los Angeles Culture Fest, simply not to be missed!
Our Celebrate the Extraordinary Pavilion returns with tributes to the Rose Parade, Rose Bowl Game and Stadium, The Tournament House (Wrigley Mansion) and the Royal Court. This year marks two exciting additions: The Bob Eubanks Equestrian pavilion and The Stephanie Edwards Artistry on Parade pavilion.
Coaches’ Challenge Family Fun Zone is THE place to kick a soccer ball, toss a basketball, climb a rock or craft your own tiara. Enjoy the family-friendly street fair atmosphere and be amazed by the Chalkfest artists, balloon artistry and incredible face painting … all FREE! Thanks to the USAF, we will again have a full-on STEAM area with challenges and games for kids of all ages. And don’t miss the Chinese Heritage Foundation area where you can learn about the building of the Trans-Continental Railroad and even take a turn driving in that golden spike. It all adds up to more games, more activities and more fun than ever.
Our ever-popular Culinary Cues stage is now bigger and better than ever providing a new more spacious home for our Celebrity Chefs. Each day features different demos throughout the day, raffles and giveaways plus the chance to become a judge!
