Lavender festival to spring into Sequim

June 30, 2012 by  

From Friday, July 20 to Sunday, July 22, the annual Sequim Lavender Festival will take place at 220 W. Alder Street in Sequim, Washington, which is just a hop down the road from Woodinville. Events at this festival run all day.

The Lavender Festival takes place each year in the heart of Dungeness Valley and is sponsored by the Sequim Lavender Growers Association for the promotion of lavender and its uses. During this festival weekend, guests can participate in self-guided tours to the various Lavender farms, from the smallest to the biggest operations. There will be all kinds of fresh-cut bouquets and lavender themed gifts available for purchase and admission to the farms is free. During this tour, staff will be available to answer questions.

The Lavender Festival Street Fair takes place on Fir Street and features three days of musical entertainment, vendors, children’s activities, and a custom car show, as well as a quilters’ conference. Parking for this event is free, as is shuttle service from a number of convenient locations.

The Lavender Festival founders began with a vision of purple fields to restore the fertile fields in the Sequim Prairie. Since then, the lavender farms have blossomed into a strong, sound, agri-business, producing more than 110,000 lavender plants each ear.

Admission to this festival is free and everyone is welcome. This is an outdoor event, so guests are asked to dress appropriately and remember their sunscreen. Flyer printing may have been used to promote this festival to the public in the valley. For more information, please visit the Lavender Festival website.
