Question about The “Age of Enlightenment” Expansion Grove of Vigilance - May I use the Grove of Vigilance after my opponent has rolled the dice?

Answer

Yes. The text on the card only determines that the Grove of Vigilance may be used when the "Celebration," "Trade," or "Brigand Attack" event is rolled. In this context, it doesn't matter when the dice were rolled and who rolled them.
