San Juan Island Lavender Festival
Tours and exhibits survey the entire process - from the field to finished product. The fields are open for strolling, relaxing and breathtaking photo ops.
The Cutting Field is open for visitors to harvest their own bouquets of certified organic lavender from the many varieties in bloom.
Demonstrations cover topics such as lavender cultivation, harvesting, essential oil distillation, history & uses, cooking with lavender and more.
The craft tent is open all day long in the fields for adults and children to make beautiful wands, wreaths, crowns and more.
Our lavender ice cream, lavender lemonade and lavender iced tea and coffee are always big hits – not to mention our lavender cookies! Island-style picnic lunches and local libations will be available all day long in the fields.
We'll be joined by many local artists who will have their work on display and for sale in the fields. Local musicians will be serenading us throughout the day and Lavendera Massage will be providing relaxing treatments amongst the flowers.
