What: Valdosta Daily Times, December 19, 2017:

The festival attracts vendors from throughout the country with unique arts & craft items. Last year, more than 170 vendors from as far away as Michigan participated in the festival.

Vendors ranged from arts and crafts to homemade candies, cakes, soaps and jams, and the Azalea Festival is looking to increase the number of vendors and the variety for the 2018 event.

“The vision of the Azalea Festival is to work to showcase the best of South Georgia and more,” [Azalea Festival Executive Director H. Aaron] Strickland said.

In addition to a variety of unique arts & craft vendors, the Azalea Festival offers six stage areas of live entertainment, a KidZone area for children, a classic car show, 5K run and more. The Azalea Festival is able to offset a majority of the costs of the special events through sponsorships and donations from businesses, families and organizations.
