The Oregon Lavender Farm Tour is our featured, statewide lavender event the 2nd weekend in July each year. Participants are highlighted on the Farm Tour page. Most of the lavender destinations highlighted on this website will be open to the public during the Farm Tour, but not all of them will be offering festival activities.
There will not be a single statewide Oregon Lavender Festival this year. Instead, there will be many! Most of the Oregon lavender destinations hold their own festival or event when their lavender is in peak bloom. Use our Event Finder to see a listing of festivals and events that are happening in 2015 throughout the state. Note: They are not all on the same weekend, so you will be able to travel and catch events in various parts of the state!

Plan to join us at the Oregon Lavender Farm Tour to enjoy the Pacific NW countryside
at its fragrant best. Dozens of different lavender destinations throw their
doors open to the public so that visitors can experience Lavender in Oregon firsthand by touring lavender farms, lavender nurseries, and lavender celebrations
of all kinds.
For a day or two, leave the world of hustle and bustle, computers, and chaos to soak in the delights lavender has to offer. Sometimes simply standing in the midst of a lavender field with its overwhelming beauty and aroma can be medicine enough to restore calm and recharge your spirit. Expect to Relax!
Tour Lavender Locations,
each with its own selection of different varieties of lavender, and each with its own activities arranged for the weekend; some have festivals, and others are geared towards relaxation. 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 second weekend in July, so be sure to click on the destinations tour page to see what each lavender location has to offer.
We also provide a tour filter which helps you decide which locations you want to visit based upon their events and offerings. And be sure to visit our maps page to get directions to the farms you plan to visit.
In weeks prior to the farm tour weekend, plein air artists will capture colorful local fields on canvas and display their art during the festival at a juried art show and sale in Beulah Park in Yamhill. For more information, visit the Paint Out Page.
Each year, the Oregon Lavender Association invites photographers to capture the magic of lavender in Oregon.
