presented as part of the 2022 Azalea Festival

Proceeds from the Azalea Festival Home Tour support the Historic Wilmington Foundation and its efforts to preserve and protect the irreplaceable historic resources of Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region.


I purchased my ticket(s) online. Where do I get my printed ticket(s)?

Starting on Friday, March 18, you may pick up your printed tickets at the Historic Wilmington Foundation’s office, located at 211 Orange Street! Stop by during business hours (Monday through Friday, 10AM-4PM). 

Starting on Friday, March 18, you may also pick up your printed tickets at Legacy Architectural Salvage, located behind Stevens Ace Hardware at 1831-B Dawson Street. Legacy is open Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9AM-2PM, and on Thursday from 9AM-5PM. 

Alternatively, you may receive your printed ticket when you begin your tour. Simply keep your confirmation email handy; you may print out a copy, or pull the email up on your mobile device. When you present the registration email at the door of the first house you choose to tour, an Azalea Festival Home Tour host will provide you with a paper ticket, complete with a map and guide to the tour homes.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No, but please keep your children with you, and do not bring strollers or car seats inside the tour homes. (Kids under the age of 12 can attend for free!) Please have your ticket with you at all homes on the tour. 

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

On-street parking options vary from neighborhood to neighborhood. There are paid parking decks downtown. Free parking is also available during tour hours (12:30pm-6:00pm on Saturday, 1:00pm-5:00pm on Sunday) at Temple Baptist Church (1808 Princess Street) and St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church (12 North 6th Street). Please respect parking hours, so as not to interfere with church services.

More information, including details on public transit options, can be found at the NC Azalea Festival official website:

What may I bring into the event?

Pack lightly, as you will be walking from house to house while in each neighborhood. Please do not bring food or drink into the tour homes; also, do not bring pets with you on the tour. 

If I'm bringing my child/children, do they need a ticket?

Tickets must be purchased for children ages 12 or over. Younger children may attend for free!

What’s the refund policy?

HWF relies on ticket sales to support the mission of preserving and protecting Wilmington’s historic, irreplaceable resources. As such, we have a no-refund policy for the Azalea Festival Home Tour.
