Each spring, thousands of attendees come out to enjoy the unique and pedestrian friendly 4th Street venue, offering an array... of musical talent, artisan vendors, quality entertainment and some perfect people watching.

At the Lilac Festival, there is an activity made for all ages. This could mean a jump in the bouncer for the kids, discovering a great new band, choosing a perfect summer patio or searching for a trendy fashion; there is no shortage of things happening.

The 4th Street Festival Society works diligently to provide an ideal environment for new and emerging local musicians to showcase their talents. There are seven stages hosting over 40 performances throughout the day, offering artists exposure to an often brand new audience. 4th Street is host to over 500 vendors that vary from artisan crafts, to imported wares, to community organizations.
The 4th Street Lilac Festival looks forward to another great year, hosting the best and brightest in Calgary's cultural community! 

Last summer, the TD Community Tour made its debut, visiting communities across Canada at an incredible range of music festivals and community events. This summer, the tour is stopping at the Lilac Festival, with even more to offer.

This year, festival goers are invited to come by and create your own custom TD Access Pass. Not only is the Pass a fun photo memento, it’s a key to potentially unlock the grand prize of $5,000. There’s also a whole host of instant prizes, including cash toward concerts to add more music to your summer.
