Since 1939, this long time event celebrates a time honored tradition, the beauty of the Southern Oregon coast and has been awarded the “The Oregon Heritage Tradition” award. Brookings gained national attention in 1962, when organizers of the town’s annual Azalea Festival invited former Japanese naval pilot Nobuo Fujita to be the parade’s grand marshal. In 1942, Fujita had catapulted his small float plane from the deck of a Japanese submarine and had flown over the town on a daring flight to bomb the redwood forests southeast of Brookings. It was the first and one of only two enemy aerial bombings of the U.S. mainland. Fujita presented the city with his heirloom samurai sword.
In 2023, the 84th Annual Azalea Festival was featured on Southern Oregon PBS show "Us As We Are". You can view the show by clicking the button below.
There's always something unique at our Street Market. From fine art to gourmet foods. Located on the corner of 5th Street and Hwy 101 in front of the Goodwill Store. Lots of parking! Want to be a vendor?
