We are excited to announce the Stage Schedule of the 2014 Lilac Festival.

Our schedule for 2014 celebrates our 25 year history and the great history of artists who have performed! Typically the Lilac Festival gives opportunities to new - up and coming local artists to perform. Our mandate is always to program 80% new content each year, BUT in 2014 because we are celebrating 25 years we decided to go back through the years and bring back some artists who have performed in festivals past. For 2014 we are taking a minute to reflect back on how the years have gone and celebrate with all Calgarians.
