On February 1, 2008, two Resolutions were issued to designate the Azalea International Folk Fair as a Georgia Official International Festival: one by the Georgia House of Representatives and the other by Georgia State Senate. What an honor!! Congratulations, Valdosta City & Lowndes County!!
The festival spans over three days. Thursday and Friday are exclusively reserved for middle school students to attend as a field trip. On Saturday, visitors from all over the South take pleasure in travelling around the world without even leaving Georgia.
Azalea International Folk Fair promotes lively cultural exchange, provides richly diverse entertainment, and enriches the local social studies curriculum in the largest scale in Georgia State. We reach out GA under-served, remote populations and geographic areas whose school students of Thomas, Colquitt, Cook, Berrien, Echols, Brooks and Valdosta-Lowndes Counties attended the programs as an educational outreach. It successfully attracted international folk dance talent not only from Georgia State, but also from the surrounding Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee & Florida, to participate in America premier World Culture Folk Dance Competition. We sponsored Youth Invention Exhibition and Robot Technology Contests that help to promote innovative, creative, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills and attitudes. It helps to prepare Georgia's young scientific talents for future technological industries and global economical opportunites. We have the World Geography: Are You Smarter Than a 7th Graders project compiling questions that are aligned with Georgia Performance Standard & CRCT for the Social Studies Curriculum.
These achievements may serve as a powerful indication of how the Azalea International Folk Fair has accomplished our mission & helped to open doors of our region for educational, cultural, social, technological, industrial, and economic development.
