Upland Lemon Festival – When life gives you lemons, pucker up and head out to the Upland Lemon Festival, where everything lemony is celebrated – from food to contests to entertainment. Celebrate the city’s citrus history with lemon pie-eating contests and a crate label exhibit. Cheer on your favorite contestant in Upland’s Got Talent and enjoy new attractions and tribute bands. With free admission and conveniently located in downtown Upland, the Lemon Festival is perfect for all ages.
The Lemon Festival has been an important part of Upland tradition since 1997. What originally started as a small celebration of the city’s citrus industry origins has grown into a town-wide affair including the Lemon Idol singing contest, delicious (and sometimes messy) food competitions, carnival rides, games and support of our local businesses.
The 2019 Upland Lemon Festival was produced by The Learning Centers at Fairplex. TLC is the community-focused, non-profit, philanthropic arm of Fairplex. Combining the event production expertise of the Fairplex team and the community commitment of TLC’s educational programs ensures the success of the Upland Lemon Festival.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit designated non-profit organizations in the City of Upland through The Learning Centers at Fairplex.
