Spend your day surrounded by the sight and smell of lavender. Lavender is a great backdrop for selfies with your friends or simply a calming landscape to observe the blooms. On top of the beauty of the flowers, you can partake in all the festival has to offer.
Activities at the festival include cutting your own lavender, watching lavender distillation workshops and wreath demonstrations, playing at the kids stations, perusing local artisan vendors and listening to live music.

Food items will also be available for purchase, including lemon lavender ice cream from Great NW Ice Cream Company, lavender lemonade and ice tea, Nothing Bundt Cakes treats, Kalo Kitchen Hawaiian food, Mexican Food and Capital Press Coffee.
