Rose City Roots Music Society (RCRMS) is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the arts and culture community in rural Alberta by bringing exciting live-music to downtown Camrose. In so doing, Rose City Roots hopes to enliven the heritage core of Camrose by giving people an opportunity to go out for dinner and visit the shops and businesses of the historic Main Street area before taking in a show.
