The Lilac Festival is an annual free street festival held in Calgary on the last Sunday of May. Thousands of people come to 4th street (between 13th Avenue South and Elbow Drive) with the slogan: “Shake off your winter blues and come to Lilac Fest!” Lilac flowers are often blooming throughout the city at this time. The event lasts for one day and people get to enjoy sunshine, flowers, food, entertainment such as music and street dancing, and shopping fun at street stalls.
The Lilac Festival 2015 will fall on May 31st, 10a.m. to 6:00p.m.
