Rochesterians are once again gearing up for the annual springtime Lilac Festival – lilacs, food, arts & crafts and most importantly, LIVE music! are all part of this celebration of warmer weather and lilac blooms. Taking place May 9th-18th in Rochester’s Highland Park.
This family friendly festival boasts of live music and children’s entertainment all day, every day. Saturday May, 10th will host the Lilac Parade at 10:30am, while the rest of that week will be filled with live music, shopping for unique and handmade creations from artists, designers and craftspeople and carnival style rides for the kiddos.
While a handful of the musical acts are local and somewhat tied to the history and backdrop of Rochester, each year the festival hosts a nationally touring well-known musical act or two. This year’s lineup has been released and the locals are excited about the bands playing this year’s festival without a doubt. All of the music events are free of charge and family friendly so grab the kids and your dancing shoes and head down to the Lilac Festival for some barefoot dancing in the fresh Spring grass, to the fragrance of the lilac blooms.
