- Can I purchase individual activities?
The petting zoo, candle dipping, vase painting, and slingshot gallery are available for $5 each, however we cannot guarantee they will be available every day of the festival for individual purchase.

For the Adventure Package, yes, starting at noon both Saturdays and Sunday.
For the Festival Package we have appointment start times available by reservation. You will be lead on a guided tour as a group. Please check in at least 10 minutes before your start time, as you may miss out on some of the activities if you are late.
- Do I need to purchase activities online or can I show up and purchase activities when I arrive?
If there are any tickets available for a particular time slot, you are welcome to purchase upon arrival. But it is strongly recommended to purchase ahead of time to guarantee your spot. If we sell out of online tickets ahead of time, we will fully staff every station so that walk-in activity packages will be available. Everyone that purchases online will be given priority for the Festival Package activities.
Discounts available for the Combo Package online only.
- How long will it take to complete the activities in each package?
The Festival Package will take approximately 2 and half hours to complete.
The Adventure Package usually take about 45 minutes. But as the archery and tomahawk throwing are offered as unlimited, the time it takes varies depending on how long you want to do it.
- Do I have to pay for activities if I just want to see the lilacs and walk around?
No, you are welcome to enjoy the property at no cost. There are several free activities throughout the property that you can do during the Lilac Festival at any time. Donations are welcome and appreciated.
- Will lilacs be available for purchase?
Yes, lilacs will be available for purchase 7 days a week for as long as they are in bloom. If you plan to purchase before 9 am or after 4 pm during the week, please let us know by calling or texting 951-847-1904.
We cannot guarantee that lilacs will be available every day of the Lilac Festival, as agriculture is out of our control and difficult to predict.
- Can I purchase activities for my kids and let them do them by themselves?
Children under 13 years old must be accompanied by a paying adult in order to participate in the activity packages. Parental supervision is extremely important at all times.
- I have young children, do I have to pay for them?
2 children 3 years old and younger are free to accompany a paying adult into all areas.
This will give them access into the petting zoo, reptile show, hoedown, and hayride. Although the candle dipping and vase painting would not be included for them, the parent will usually allow their accompanying child to take their place for those activities.
Up to 2 children are allowed to accompany for free, per adult. More than 2 accompanying children under 3 years old would need to pay $5 per activity.
- Are the activities only for kids?
Definitely not! The Festival Activity Package is intended for all ages. The Adventure Package (archery, tomahawk throwing, slingshots) is intended for anyone able to operate and hold the equipment properly; usually older kids and adults.
- Is the property wheelchair accessible?
There are no stairs to hinder a wheelchair, however there are some inclines throughout the property with rugged terrain that may be difficult for a wheelchair to get through.
- Are dogs allowed?
Woohoo yes! We love puppies of all ages. You already know they need to be on a leash, but please feel free to bring them! Except in the petting zoo and reptile show… Please do not bring them in there (duh).
- I purchased tickets and can't make it! Can I get a refund?
Although we do not offer refunds, we are happy to transfer your payment to another day if you let us know at least 48 hours in advance.
