The 2012 Azalea Festival was a huge success. Over 20,000 attendees from all over the Southeast came to Valdosta to enjoy two full days of vendors and entertainment. New this year was the live tiger display by Tiger Stripes Animal Sanctuary and the Classic Car and Motorcycle Shows. We hope to bring all three of these new attractions back to the 2013 festival. Special thanks to all of the volunteers, sponsors, vendors, entertainers, and attendees that helped to make the 2012 Azalea Festival the best ever.
The 2013 Valdosta-Lowndes Azalea Festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 9 and 10, 2013. In addition to the attractions mentioned above, guests can expect to see over 150 arts and crafts vendors, a food court, three stages of entertainment, a 5k race, a 1 mile fun walk/run, and a huge KidZone full of fun and activities.
This event has become a regional festival attracting attendees from all over the Southeastern United States. In 2012, we had over 140 vendors from Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, North and South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia. In addition, last minute hits on our website indicate that people are traveling from as far away as the Carolinas, Alabama, and throughout Florida to attend the Azalea Festival. And why not? Admission is free and it’s great fun!
