Azalea Time in Oklahoma, 2014!
The Muskogee Azalea Festival us underway
at Honor Heights Park in Muskogee, OK.

The severe winter has the blooms running
late. The tulips in the Palilion Garden will
likely be the highlight of this year's festival, as
the icy winter has stunted the azaleas.

One of the top annual events in the South, the
Muskogee Azalea Festival takes place each
spring in the historic city of
Muskogee,
Oklahoma.

The Muskogee Azalea Festival takes place
each April. The main day for this year's
festival will be April 12. The parade will
began that day at 11 a.m.

Considered one of America's finest spring
events, the Muskogee Azalea Festival draws
visitors from around the world. The blooms
are located at Honor Heights Park and
associated events take place throughout the
city.

Honor Heights Park is located atop a hill
overlooking the city and features 40 acres of
beautifully landscaped gardens featuring
azaleas, dogwoods, redbuds and a host of
other blooming plants. The highlight of the
park, of course, is its azalea plants. There
are 625 varieties and over 30,000 plants.

Honor Heights Park also features picnic
areas, walking trails, a picturesque lake, and
a new Butterfly Sanctuary. The festival also
features food, carriage rides and more.

The Muskogee Azalea Festival features both
a driving tour that loops through the park and
magnificent azaleas and flowering trees and
walking trails and sidewalks that allow
visitors to get up close and personal with
nature. Be sure to bring your camera,
because it truly is an unbelievable sight.

A schedule for this year's event is available at
right. Please keep in mind that the exact
dates for seeing best blooms vary some
from year to year. The blooms in 2012 were
very early, so it all depends on how cold the
winter will be and how early spring comes
next year!

For photos from previous events, please
follow the link in the yellow box on the lower
right hand corner of this page.

Honor Heights Park, the scene of the festival,
is open to the public daily.

The park was purchased by the City of
Muskogee in 1909 and is considered the
"crown jewel" of the city's park system for
good reason.

Covering 132 acres, it features five lakes,
fountains, walking paths, a rose garden,
gazebo, arboretum and, of course, the
magnificent plantings of azaleas, dogwoods
and other blooming plants that explode with
color each spring.
