In 2015, Lilac Festival introduced a program to reduce the amount of waste made at our event. We diverted 55% from the landfill in the first year!
Our goal for 2019 is to divert 75%! We believe that a zero impact event is attainable through hard work and attention to detail.
Lilac Festival 2019 will be prohibit the use of styrofoam food containers and mandate compostable food ware items, such as paper plates and bamboo utensils ONLY.
