You are invited to join us for the 66th Annual Azalea Festival in Wilmington NC on April 10 – 14, 2013.  The weekend is packed with entertainment for all.

The Mission: “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.”

The 2013 official artwork is by Elizabeth Singletary.
