Costume Contest 

2018 Rosie Rally Home Front Festival will feature an exciting Costume Contest with 5 unique categories:

Best Traditional Rosie Costume – Pay homage to the iconic “We Can Do It!” woman herself, and give us your best Rosie the Riveter outfit – coveralls, polka-dot bandanna, and all!
Best Non-Rosie Home Front Worker – The Home Front wasn’t just Riveters! Nurses, welders, electricians, victory gardeners, and more all did their part to help the war effort.
Best Parent/Child Costume – Make it a family affair and come in matching attire, or give us your take on a Home Front theme.
Best Authentic 40’s Period Costume – Dust off your skirt suits and shoulder pads, and slip on those saddle shoes! What would Rosie (or Roger) have worn on a day off?
Most Creative Interpretation of Home Front History – Here’s your chance to get those creative juices flowing. You might come as a Liberty Ship, a Victory Garden, a Ration Book, or anything else you can dream up!

A grand prize Audience Favorite will be chosen from the winners of the contest categories above!

This event is a family celebration of the WWII Home Front effort, so we ask that you keep costumes G-rated and leave all battlefront paraphernalia (real or reproduction) at home.


This year we will have a great lineup of live music. Stay tuned for artists and bands performing at this year's Rally!
