After two years of cancellations, the City of Lancaster’s iconic and highly-anticipated California Poppy Festival™ will finally return to the Antelope Valley Friday, April 22 through Sunday, April 24, 2022, to celebrate springtime and the City’s world-renowned, vibrant orange poppies.
“The 2022 California Poppy Festival™ will be bigger and better than ever before! As you know, we’ve canceled this event for the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, we have some time we need to make up for,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Our team is hard at work and pulling out all of the stops – this will be nothing like you have ever seen or experienced before at the California Poppy Festival™!”
To accommodate even more events, people, and entertainment, the California Poppy Festival™ will be held at the AV Fair & Event Center, at 2551 W. Avenue H in Lancaster, for the first time ever. For three days, Lancaster residents and people from across the state will be able to enjoy live entertainment, a beer garden, food, live animal exhibits, over 200 vendors, and more amidst the sunshine.
