Bring the family to Claremore's annual Lilac Festival and plant your own lilac bush in honor of Claremore's native son, Lynn Riggs. Start the festival off on Saturday with the Cruizin' Claremore car show, children's activities, an art show and free stage entertainment in downtown Claremore. Beautiful lilac bushes will be available for purchase, as well as a variety of other plants. Visitors to the Lilac Festival will receive planting tips and other gardening information.
Snack on festival concessions while enjoying a full day of family-friendly fun, and don't miss the wiener dog race, a favorite of festival-goers each year. Other activities at the Lilac Festival include arts and craft booths, inflatable toys for the kids, an old-fashioned cake walk, a model railroad exhibit and great downtown shopping in historic Claremore. Celebrate spring, venture out into the warm sunshine and spend a sunny afternoon wandering through the endless festivities at the Lilac Festival.
