Come join DARK+STORMY in our new hometown. One of the best kept secrets in California remains the quaint “Aspen like” village of Pine Mountain Club. Located in the Los Padres National Forest, at an elevation of a little over a mile above sea level and nestled between Mt. Pinos and San Emigdio Mountain, PMC will be hosting their 36th Annual Lilac Festival.
Begun in 1982 as a way to forget winter and welcome the approaching summer, the Lilac Festival started as little more than a bake sale and a Maypole Dance, and has grown into a full-fledged Mountain tradition. The Lilac was chosen as a centerpiece for the Festival because it thrives in our mountain climate, and its short flowering season falls roughly at the same time as the Festival.
Over 100 Arts & Crafts booths will be open all day, along with international food vendors, restaurants and unique shops, live music throughout the Festival, and an amusement area for kids.
