Lilacia Park

Theoretically, we are going to this festival today. Last year, by the time we got there, the lilacs were mostly spent. According to the “bloom-o-meter”, today is a good day to go.

Lombard Park District:
With its wide array of lilacs and tulips, Lilacia Park in Lombard has long been a spring-time attraction for thousands. This year, Lombard celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Lilac Time festival, scheduled for April 30-May 15.

“We’re very excited to honor the 75th anniversary of Lilac Time,” said Mike Fugiel, Executive Director of the Lombard Park District. “From horticulture and historical tours to concerts and children’s events, Lilac Time offers something for everyone to enjoy.”

Set on the former estate of Colonel William R. Plum, Lilacia Park boasts 200 varieties of lilacs and 50 varieties of tulips along with perennials, annuals, a picnic area and more. Plum bequeathed his lilac collection to the village in 1927, thus ensuring Lombard’s long lilac heritage.
