Our events page lists lavender-centric events throughout the state -- be sure to visit it and see what is happening. We also have three recurring yearly events:
TOUR LAVENDER LOCATIONS, each with its own selection of different varieties of lavender, and each with its own activities arranged for the festival. At lavender farms, you can cut your own bouquets of fresh lavender; at nurseries, you can purchase specialty lavender plants and speak to experts on growing and cultivating lavender. Each location has special events planned for the festival weekend.
