The mission of the Lemon Lily Festival is to foster an appreciation for the threatened native Lily, Lilium parryi, educate the public of its plight and relevance to Idyllwild, restore it to its historical range and benefit Idyllwild economically by promoting it as a visitor destination. The Lemon Lily Festival was founded in 2009 by local businessman Doug Yagaloff along with several botanists, business folk, and the Idyllwild Garden Club who had a common vision of restoring the Lemon Lily to its natural habitat in the San Jacinto Mountains. This group enlisted the help of volunteers, the Idyllwild Nature Center and the US Forest Service to make this vision a reality; come celebrate this 8th annual Lily festival.
