Azalea Festival 2015
March 14 & 15, 2015
August 25, 2014:
The 2014 Azalea Festival was an overwhelming success. Approximately 22,000 attendees from all over the Southeast came to Valdosta to enjoy two full days of vendors and entertainment. Special thanks to all of the volunteers, sponsors, vendors, entertainers, and attendees that helped to make the 2014 Azalea Festival the best ever.
Planning for the 15th Annual Azalea Festival has been underway for the past few months. By popular demand, we plan on bringing back the live tiger display by Tiger Stripes Animal Sanctuary, the Classic Car and Motorcycle Show, the Disc-Connected K9’s Frisbee Show, the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, the Wild Adventures Stage, and a whole lot more!
The 2015 Valdosta-Lowndes Azalea Festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 14 and 15, 2015. In addition to the attractions mentioned above, guests can expect to see over 150 arts and crafts vendors, a food court, five stage areas 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 2014, we had over 150 vendors and guests from nine states, including Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Alabama, and Ohio. Race participants have come from as far away from Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. 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!
Plan to stay for the whole weekend—March 14 & 15 will also be the seasonal opening weekend for Wild Adventures Theme Park. So, plan to spend the entire weekend in Valdosta and Lowndes County. Spend a day at the festival and a day at Wild Adventures! In addition to the Azalea Festival and Wild Adventures, Valdosta and Lowndes County offers a lot more to see and do. Book a room at one of our many hotels for the weekend and dine at any of our great restaurants. Make the weekend of March 14 & 15, 2015 your South GA mini vacation!
