Rose cost?

I would love to attend rose some day. Would like to have ballpark figure of how much to save.
I would like to attend a few classes and the baby shower. What are best ones to attend.

That’s a rough thing to estimate because it very much depends on where you’re coming from, how many people you plan on bringing, how you travel, where you stay- etc. So for me, I came alone from North Carolina, I’m staying in an airbnb, I bought my floor tickets ahead of time, and I bought some cheap food from walmart. Plus mostly I’ve been using Uber to get around. So
for me

  • plane tickets: $350

  • airbnb : $170 total for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday

  • Transportation: Probably around $80

  • Food: (Cheap stuff) Cereal, pb & J, Etc around $40

Also allow spending money if you wish! And classes seem to range from $200 up & the baby shower this year was $69
All in all without spending money on events and classes I’ve spent around $700

I wanted to go to Rose but I have 3 dogs I’m taking care of and are very bonded to me. I can’t leave them for days in a row.

Not an excuse but a reason.

They have a wonderful buffet with the baby shower and awards banquet. My hotel has a huge breakfast with the room. I think my room was 120 a night. It’s close and two years ago I walked. With my bad knee I can’t this year. My flight was 300. Had to check bags going and coming 30$ each way. Depends on the class. My problem is I want everything I see so spent more than I should.

Save as much money as possible because there is so much to buy! Amazing amazing things. I’ve been painting for 6 years and this is our first show. We sold 9 of our 12 babies today and have had such an amazing time! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I’ve met some amazing new friends! I will never not attend now that I’m here!
