The Village of Lombard, also known as the “Lilac Village,” is just 21 miles west of Chicago and is characterized by its quaint, tree-lined streets and close-knit community.
Lombard residents are proud of the Village’s rich history, diverse entertainment opportunities and unique seasonal events, such as Saturday night Cruise Nights with vintage vehicles on display throughout the summer.
Since 1930, the village has hosted an annual lilac festival and parade in May. Lilac Time is Lombard’s famed 16-day horticultural festival. Many lilac-themed events take place throughout the year, including a formal ball, concerts, wine and beer tastings in the park, a Mother’s Day brunch, and an arts and crafts fair.
Lombard students are served by two elementary and middle school districts. High school students attend Glenbard schools, named for the district that is shared with the Village of Glen Ellyn.
