North Carolina Azalea Festival

Uber is the Preferred Ridesharing App of the 2017 North Carolina Azalea Festival

WILMINGTON, NC – The North Carolina Azalea Festival is excited to announce that Uber is the preferred ridesharing app of the 2017 Azalea Festival. Uber and the North Carolina Azalea Festival are partnering to help festival goers spend more time enjoying the weekend’s events and less time worrying about their ride.

Riders heading to and from the Airlie Luncheon Garden Party Presented by Belk can utilize the dedicated pickup and dropoff area in front of the Garden Services Center.

For the Festival Concerts at the Miller Lite Main Stage, riders should aim to get picked up and dropped off east of 3rd Street to avoid the festival road closures. We always recommend calling or texting your driver to coordinate your pickup.

Riders who are new to Uber can download the app and sign up with the promo code AZALEA17 to get $20 off their first ride!

Existing Uber riders can try referring someone who hasn’t tried it yet—you’ll both receive your next ride free.
