Festival History 

The California Poppy Festival’s sponsors include the City of Lancaster, the Wildflower Information Center, and the Lancaster Woman’s Club, who joined to promote to Californians the beauty and history of the California state flower. Since the California Poppy Festival’s inception, several thousand visitors visited the Antelope Valley area to catch a view of the gorgeous poppies found in the area.

The California Poppy Festival’s location is near the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery, which provides an abundance of information for visitors to the festival. Visitors can begin their tour of the California Poppy Festival at the museum, grabbing free wildflower maps that point them to the best areas in which to view the poppies. After obtaining the maps, visitors are then encouraged to head over to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, where the California Poppy Festival takes place.
