Why is the Azalea garden party catered by an out of town company?

Azalea Festival President Charles Kays said Bill’s BBQ out of Wilson, N.C., has catered the garden party for decades and done a terrific job.

Because of that, there has been no reason to change the caterer, Kays said.

“We do use many local caterers for our other venues, like the Patron’s Party and the Past Presidents Party,” he said. “It’s the North Carolina Azalea Festival, not just the Wilmington Azalea Festival.”


How come the convention center was not used for the Azalea Festival concerts?

What type of perks does the Azalea Queen recieve? Does she get paid?
