The Charleston Chamber of Commerce invites you to participate in Charleston's 49th Annual Dogwood-Azalea Festival Parade!
Welcome to the Bloom Factory is the theme
of this year's parade. The 2017 Dogwood-Azalea Festival Parade is brought
to you in part by Casey's General Stores.
The parade will assemble behind St. Henry's School (300 block of Court Street) Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Out of town judges will be present to judge entries during the line-up before the parade begins. Prizes will be awarded to the top three float entries in the church/civic group or organization category, and to the top three float entries in the business category. Use of the theme will be considered when floats are judged.
The Parade Registration Form is available on paper and in the online form below. While our preference is to accept online parade registrations you may, if you'd rather, choose to submit your form via fax or U.S. Mail, or simply drop it by the Chamber office. Please see the link to a printable copy at the bottom of this page if you choose to mail, fax, or hand-deliver your registration form.
To register for the parade online please provide us with the information requested in the form below. Please register before the April 19th deadline.
We ask political candidates who wish to walk in the parade to limit their entourage to themselves and up to 9 supporters.
To all participants: No candy or other materials may be thrown. All items must be distributed by hand passing.
Thank you for your participation in Charleston's 49th Annual Dogwood-Azalea Festival! We look forward to seeing you in April!
