Designated the “Lilac Village," Lombard 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 Cruise Nights and Summer Concert Series, which puts vintage vehicles and live music 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 held at the beautiful Lilacia Park. Several other lilac-themed events take place throughout the year, including a formal ball, concerts, wine and beer tastings in the park, and an arts and crafts fair.
