The Lilac Festival in Pine Mountain Club

by | Apr 25, 2019 | Community

 One of the best kept secrets in California, remains the quaint “Aspen like” village of Pine Mountain Club (PMC). PMC is located in the Los Padres National Forest, at an elevation of a little over a mile above sea level, nestled between Mt. Pinos and San Emigdio Mountain. It is remarkably easy to get to, just a comfortable 55-minute drive north of Magic Mountain. Those in the know often refer to PMC as “the nearby faraway place”.
The Villagers of PMC are already busy preparing for their 37th annual Lilac Festival, taking place on the weekend of May 18th and 19th. It has been estimated that around five thousand visitors join the approximately three thousand locals for a weekend of arts, music, food, fun and family play. The village fills with artisan vendors, who begin displaying their unique works of art and creations both days starting at 10am. On Saturday, at 11:00 a.m., after the singing of our National Anthem, our yearly parade commences through the village center.
Throughout the weekend there will be entertainment for all ages, including live music, dance displays, helicopter rides (at a nominal charge), talented acts, miniature train rides, pony rides, petting zoo, horseshoes, great festival food, and a large children’s play area with state of the art slides and inflatables. Both admission and parking are free.
Climatology wise, as with any place, the weather in PMC can vary. Typically, though, in late spring we can expect blue sunny skies during the day with temperatures in the mid 70’s and crisp clear star filled nights with temperatures in the 40’s.
To get to PMC, take the Interstate 5 north and exit at Frazier Park. Go west 18 miles following the signs to Pine Mountain Club. For further information, including vendor applications, please go to our website at We hope to see many of you in our gorgeous mountain paradise.
