In Arizona's arid climate, there's one little purple blossom that adds a pop of brightness to the dusty red soil: lavender. The growers at Red Rock Lavender cultivate fields of the flowers at high altitudes, and once a year, they like to celebrate the achievement. During the Red Rock Lavender Festival, they invite the public to stop in and smell the complete absence of roses. Each day of the festival is chock-full of lavender cooking demonstrations and grower discussions. Visitors also get the opportunity to roam the picturesque fields and collect their very own bundle of fresh lavender. Lavender plants will also be available for sale throughout the festival.
The farm's staff doesn't just grow the flowers, though. They derive a whole range of products from the fragrant blossoms, including herb blends, lotions, and scented candles. They carry all these products in the store, and they will also be available during the festival.
