We invite you to join us each year in April for the Dogwood-Azalea Festival!  Tour the 6 mile Dogwood-Azalea Trail when Charleston glows with the beauty of magnificent dogwoods and azaleas at peak bloom.  Our dogwoods and azaleas are the stars of this festival but read on for a list of other exciting events!

The theme of our 47th Annual Dogwood-Azalea Festival is A Step Back in Time.  We invite you and your family to come help us celebrate the floral spring beauty, and enjoy the wholesome hospitality of our fair community!

Here are just a few of the events you won't want to miss:  home tours, candlelight tour, plant sale, arts and crafts bazaar, a parade (one of the area's largest), an old-fashioned ice cream social, art show, piano concerts (featuring 16 pianists), carriage rides, and more!
