PRIVATE VIP EVENTS
Patrons’ Party Gala
The Patrons’ Party Gala is the grand finale for sponsors of the Azalea Festival. A black-tie event filled with wonderful food displays and dancing to the sounds of the hottest national party bands, this is our chance to thank all of our sponsors for their continued support.
Airlie Luncheon Garden Party
The premier event in Wilmington, the Airlie Luncheon Garden Party is one you can’t miss! Join us and 2,500 of our closest friends as we kick off Spring with big hats, seersucker, bow ties, and the networking event of the year all on the beautiful grounds of Airlie Gardens.
After Garden Get Down
The After Garden Get Down at Bluewater is a fun dockside party open to the public immediately following the Airlie Luncheon Garden Party. Guests are invited to Bluewater’s waterfront bar & patio to enjoy live music, food and drink specials, and the best view on the Intracoastal. Attendees also receive a special guest appearance by Queen Azalea!
The Celebrity Reception provides sponsors of the Festival a close and personal opportunity to see and meet Queen Azalea, Celebrity Guests, and other Festival Dignitaries. A relaxing luncheon on sprawling country club grounds, this is a great way to start the festivities!
