Gardendale Magnolia Festival
The Total Family Experience

Gardendale Civic Center
857 Main Street | Gardendale, AL 35071

The Gardendale Magnolia Festival is presented by Gardendale Magnolia Festival, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit. The city of Gardendale is the Presenting Sponsor. Kathleen Phillips is the Event Coordinator.

Our mission is to provide visitors with an economical, family-friendly experience, promote local businesses, tourism, and volunteerism in the Greater Gardendale area.

The proceeds of the festival benefit college scholarships for local high school seniors. In addition, the festival chooses two charities each year to promote, feature, and benefit in some way. Past charities have included Breast Cancer Research of Alabama, Teen Challenge, Just Keep Smiling, Cornerstone Ranch, Outdoor Ability Foundation, and Miracle League of Gardendale. The 2017 featured charities are Jimmie Hale Mission and The Foundry Ministries. This year's Superfriends 5K race benefits North Jefferson Relay for Life.

Volunteerism is highly promoted and rewarded in the Gardendale Magnolia Festival. We believe in teaching children the importance of volunteering at an early age.

In order to qualify to apply for the Gardendale Magnolia Festival scholarships, each applicant must complete at least 3 hours of volunteerism for the festival. The judging criteria is heavily weighted on their overall volunteerism and service to the community. The festival also recognizes two Volunteers of the Year; one student and one adult.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
