Well, we’ve waited as long as we could, but things just aren’t looking good. So, it just absolutely breaks my heart to have to announce that we have to cancel the Lilac Festival this year. This is a decision that was not made lightly. But the health and safety of our community and vendors need to be top priority. We will look forward to building on next year’s festival and make it a great year!! Stay safe and healthy everyone, and we will see you in 2021!!
Welcome to the Barryton Lilac Festival! Held annually during the first weekend in June. The festival is named for the numerous Lilac’s planted here many decades ago that come into full bloom at the end of May or beginning of June, depending on the weather.
This is a small town festival that focuses on family-friendly events in an alcohol-free, wholesome atmosphere. The theme for this year’s festival and parade is “Superhero’s”. We have many events that are free or inexpensive to participate in.
We have everything from a chicken bbq, car and bike show, craft show, flea market, kids games, various contests, pony rides, live entertainment and much more! This years special events scheduled include a Horseshoe Pitching Contest, Plant Swap, 5K run, a Motorcycle/Car Poker Run, Bed Race and a Buck-a-Duck Race! For a full list of our scheduled events please visit our flyer.
Join us in making this years parade one of the biggest Barryton has ever seen! Grab your friends and build a float, drive your car, bike or ATV; ride a horse or tractor or just walk along in costume. Line-up begins at 10 am at the Barryton Elementary School with the parade beginning at 11 am. For signup info visit our contact page.
