WOODVILLE – The 80th Annual Tyler County Dogwood Festival is only a few months away, and plans are already underway to make this one of the most memorable to date.  The coronation of the 2023 Dogwood Queen and presentation of the royal court in the elaborately decorated outdoor amphitheater will be the highlight of this exciting festival!

The Tyler County Dogwood Festival has invited surrounding cities to send a senior girl to represent them as a duchess in the royal court to her highness the Queen. The festival would also like to extend the invitation to those of you from Tyler County who may have an interested granddaughter, niece, cousin or friend from another city that might like to participate in this year’s festival as a visiting duchess. Each duchess must be a high school senior and have a high school student as an escort. The festival is only able to accommodate 24 duchesses, so get your registration form and fee in as soon as possible. The deadline for registration is Feb. 10, 2023.

The 80th annual Tyler County Dogwood Festival will be a wonderful experience for a senior girl, as she will have the opportunity to make new friends and share in a fun-filled weekend as we celebrate the beauty of springtime in Tyler County.

For more information or to get a copy of the application, go to www.tylercountydogwoodfestival.org. Information will also be posted on the Tyler County Dogwood Festival Facebook page.
