Bloom Into Spring At This Beautiful Lilac Festival In New Mexico

Springtime in the Land of Enchantment is always magical, but every year in mid-May the beautiful, wonderfully smelling flower known as the lilac blooms to life and fills up our state. Every year, Taos hosts an annual event celebrating the purple flowers, and it’s fun for the whole community. Get ready for live entertainment, food, crafts, and even a pet parade surrounded by lilacs at this wonderful festival that will help you bloom your way into the new season.
