This free, one-day event marks the kickoff to Calgary’s vibrant festival season, inviting citizens to shake off their winter blues and reconnect with the city’s thriving creative community.

Each spring, thousands of attendees gather to enjoy the unique, pedestrian-friendly 4th Street venue. The festival offers an array of musical talent, artisan vendors, quality entertainment, and perfect people-watching opportunities.

The Lilac Festival has something for everyone. Kids can jump in the bouncy castles, while adults discover new bands, find the perfect summer patio, or hunt for the latest fashion trends. The festival promises no shortage of exciting activities.

The 4th Street Festival Society works tirelessly to create an ideal environment for new and emerging local musicians to showcase their talents. With six stages hosting over 70 performances throughout the day, artists gain exposure to fresh audiences.

This year, Petfinity, Petzoic Vet Hospital, and the Petfinity Foundation will be part of the festival, adding even more excitement and community spirit to the event.
