TYLER COUNTY  The tradition of the Dogwood Festival will be in bloom before we know it, with the three weekends that comprise the festival spanning from March 23 through Queen’s Weekend, which is April 6.

The volunteers who produce the festival are already planning what organizers say “will surely be an unforgettable celebration.” One tradition that the festival maintains is to invite girls who are seniors in high school from surrounding cities to represent those cities as duchesses in the royal court for the 2024 Dogwood Queen.

According to the organizers, “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.  This 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.”

Visiting duchesses will participate in festivities April 4 through April 6.  Each duchess must be a high school senior and have a high school student as an escort.  A local escort will be provided if needed.

If you know someone who might be interested, please email Candace Dagle by email at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
