The 2013 California Poppy Festival is scheduled for April 20-21, 2013. The Poppy Festival runs from 10am to 6pm on both days, and takes place rain or shine!
Join us for two days of music, art, food and fun celebrating the state flower of California and the appearance of poppies in the Antelope Valley!
Warm breezes replace the winter chill, jubilant laughter fills the air, and poppies burst into bloom blanketing hillsides in a sea of orange.
The California Poppy Festival kicks off spring in the Antelope Valley with a glorious array of celebrated performers, unrivaled events, and mouth-watering delicacies designed to delight, enchant, and amuse people of all ages.

Lancaster boasts one of California's most abundant crops of the vibrant poppies that are California's state flower.
For several years, the City of Lancaster co-sponsored the Wildflower Information Center with the Lancaster Woman's Club to cater the interests of thousands of visitors who flocked to the Antelope Valley for a glimpse of these brilliant, beautiful flowers.
Held at the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery, visitors could pick up free wildflower maps and learn about the best viewing locations before heading out to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. Read More >>
