The Rochester Lilac Festival is a 125-year-old tradition that celebrates the city’s beautiful lilacs and expansive gardens. The festival takes place every May in Highland Park, designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, and home to one of the largest lilac groves in the world. As a lifelong Rochesterian, I have attended this 10-day festival for as long as I can remember so it seemed necessary to create a collection of color inspired by this treasured event.
The collection features five vibrantly speckled colorways in variegated floral shades of pink, purple, magenta, and green that are intentionally designed to fade together. The colors are inspired by the beautiful lilacs that bloom in Rochester every spring as well as the celebrated landmarks all around the festival site.
The collection will be available this Friday, May 12, so pop some kettle corn and cake up your next project with the Rochester Lilac Festival color collection.
