The Taos Lilac Festival is blossoming for the first time in Taos, with a three-day free event celebrating the heritage of lilacs, May 17–19.
The inaugural Grand Festival Weekend will include a pet parade and costume contest; live music and dancing; children’s carousel; food and crafts vendors; and many family friendly activities.
Lilacs flourish abundantly in Taos and peak the last two weeks of May. “The Taos Lilac Festival is aimed at celebrating the abundant lilacs that grace our Town, and to promote their care and planting throughout the Taos area,” said co-organizer John Hamilton. “We hope this new event will not only draw visitors to enjoy the fragrant beauty of Taos in the springtime but encourage residents to properly maintain and grow these beautiful flowers which thrive in our town.”
For the duration of the festival around Taos Plaza, festival-goers can purchase unique art from more than 40 talented artisans who work with a variety of mediums including ceramics, fiber, wood, metal work, jewelry and crafts.
