Ten days of free entertainment on the main stage including performances by national recording artists.  Free children’s entertainment during the week and on the weekends!   

Visitors will see not only nature's bounty in abundance, but exhibitors, food vendors, entertainment, children's activities and so much more. We encourage you to travel to the Lilac Festival, there is something for everyone!
