The Lilac Luncheon

  • Babcock's Grove House 101 West Saint Charles Road Lombard, IL, 60148 United States

Join the Lombard Historical Society at Babcock’s Grove House restaurant for a fascinating account of the history of Lilacia Park and Lombard’s historic Lilac Time. Learn about ''the dean of the world's landscape architects'' Jens Jensen’s integral role, the “fixed” Lilac Queen vote, and how an entire town got behind an orchestrated marketing effort to put the “Lilac Village” on the map. 
Lunch and non-alcoholic beverages are included, followed by an optional tour of Lilacia Park (steps from Babcock’s). Cost is $25 and tickets are required.
Tickets are limited. Purchase online below or in person at the Historical Society’s Victorian Cottage, 23 W. Maple  (call first 630-629-1885 to be sure we're open).
