PASADENA, Calif. (November 30, 2021)– The Rose Bowl Stadium, in coordination with the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation, will host a can’t-miss 100th birthday celebration on October 28, 2022 – the exact night that it hits the century mark from the day it opened back in 1922.

The “Party of the Century” will be the first fundraising event of its kind for the iconic America’s Stadium. It will be hosted on the signature Rose Bowl Stadium field to celebrate the life and moments of the venue’s global history, while generating support to protect, preserve and enhance its future as a National Historic Landmark. The event had to be postponed from April 2020 following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will raise funds towards the on-going Legacy Foundation Centennial Capital Campaign ( that has a goal of generating $40 million in new philanthropic support to spark the continued preservation, protection and enhancement of the National Historic Landmark’s future.

“Over the past almost-100 years, the Rose Bowl Stadium has touched not only our lives locally but those of millions of fans across the globe,” event co-chairs Angel Throop and Angie Miller said in a statement. “This historic venue has fulfilled dreams and created generational memories that will last a lifetime. We are excited, humbled and honored to be involved in the start of the Centennial Celebration of this historic venue, and to throw a birthday party deserving of its 100-year history, which has been and will continue to be a big part of our lives.”

The “Party of the Century” will welcome a Roaring ‘20s theme to celebrate the 1920s – the decade when the stadium was built. Guests will experience an unforgettable evening together enjoying the Stadium in a 1920s grand fashion. The evening will include a 1920s speakeasy, gourmet dining, entertainment, high profile guests and many more exciting surprises.

The event is expected to be a sellout, so it is highly recommended that interested attendees visit the official website at to join the priority list. Tickets will go on sale early in 2022. For those that purchased a ticket for the original date, prior to its rescheduling, a Legacy Foundation staff member will be contacting you in the coming months.
