The Lilac Festival in Pine Mountain Club
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 36th annual Lilac Festival taking place on the weekend of May 19th and 20th. 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 10 a.m. On Saturday, this is followed by acrobatic skydiving daredevils due to land at 11 am. This kicks off our yearly parade through the village center after the singing of our National Anthem by a local talented artist.
Throughout the weekend there will be entertainment for all ages, including live music, dance displays, various talented acts, a golf tournament, horseshoe tournament, 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 www.pmclilacfestival.com.
After Lilac Festival is over, the focus shifts to fine wine in a spectacular outdoor setting. All serious wine aficionados simply must attend our annual “Wine in the Pines” on June 9th. Please visit our website www.wineinthepines.com for details on this world class wine and food tasting event. See you in paradise.
