Mission Statement

The mission of the North Carolina Azalea Festival is to be nationally recognized as a showcase for our community’s rich array of artwork, gardens, history, and culture through recreational, educational and family-oriented events. The Festival encourages volunteerism and civic participation as it contributes to the region’s economy and promotes the unique qualities of Wilmington’s river-to-the-sea community.

Description

The North Carolina Azalea Festival is Wilmington’s annual community celebration and the largest festival of its kind in the state. Founded in 1948, the Azalea Festival has emerged as Wilmington’s premier event. Each April, a full week of natural beauty, big-name entertainment, festive galas, fun family events and Southern hospitality come together to showcase the charms of the Wilmington area. The Festival’s concerts, fairs and special events such as the Parade are viewed by more than one million people each year, The Southeast Tourism Society often selects the North Carolina Azalea Festival as one of its Top 20 Events. All of the festival's events are planned and executed by committees of volunteers. Come join us!
