The Goulburn Lilac City Festival is Australia's longest continuously-run community festival. It was established in 1951 and has occurred annually, every October long weekend ever since.

The festival is outdoors to celebrate Goulburn in the spring once again by welcoming a myriad of Carnival Rides, festival markets, music and busking, art display at the Goulburn Club, flowers, and heritage celebrations of Goulburn for the whole weekend not to mention the famous Lilac City Festival Parade.

A traditional shop-front competition will have the City’s Auburn Street dotted with lilac windows while the central Belmore Park will be green, blossoming and air abuzz.

Proudly supported by Goulburn Mulwaree Council.
