2022 Azaleas on Tour Porch Parade

The North Carolina Azalea Festival has always been about generations of fun and those azaleas that means so much to us. During Festival Week (April 4 to April 10) we are asking the members of the community to celebrate with us by decorating their porch, yard or window to bring a smile to your friends and neighbors. The theme of the porch parade is Azaleas and Spring!

The Azaleas on Tour Porch Parade will take place from April 4 to April 10.

Step 1: Register your display!
Registration is FREE!
You will be added to our Azaleas on Tour Porch Parade Map.

Step 2: Decorate Your Porch (Window, Yard, Sidewalk) with a fun spring and/or azalea theme.

Porches must be fully decorated by April 3, 2022, and able to stay up until midnight Sunday, April 10, 2022.

Porches must be appropriate for a family-friendly audience.
Don’t have a porch? No problem! Feel free to decorate your lawn, the sidewalk, a window, or something else visible from the street or sidewalk.

Step 3: Explore, Celebrate, Share
Check the Porch Parade Map often to see how the celebration is growing!

Go for a walk around your neighborhood, take pictures of the porches you find, and tag us on social to help share the joy!
