"In Gerberoy, the Fête des Roses is a tradition. It all started with the medieval town with its ancient houses and narrow cobbled streets...When the post-impressionist painter Henri Le Sidaner discovered the village, he decided to come and live here and encouraged all the inhabitants to add flowers to the streets by planting at least one rose bush in front of each house. And, in 1928, he organised the first Rose Festival. Today all throughout the world, the town is famous for its flowers as much as it is for its architectural beauty. There are so many different ancient rose bushes that we cannot even make a list of them!
The locals are delighted with this day of festivities, happy to participate in the beauty of the site and to help make it well-known. Nothing could be done without them and the spirit of this festival really lies with them. I think that the visitors see this day like an authentic village festival. Here we are, at the end of the world somewhat, untouched by time and the Fête des Roses is a way of sharing our history with others".
