Thomasville's biggest community festival is the annual Rose Show, which for several decades has graced the streets and homes of this already beautiful community with thousands of blooming roses. City gardens boast upward of 7,000 flowers, and many individual, green-thumbed residents and garden clubs join in, planting and showing their own gardens. Held the final week in April, the Rose Show fills the air in Thomasville with fabulous scents as rose growers from around the world compete for top marks. Street fairs, arts and crafts shows, garden tours, and parades are just a few of the events that pack the schedule of this three-day affair.
