The Sequim Lavender Farm festival transforms scenic Carrie Blake Park into a fragrant oasis celebrating the bounty of Sequim-Dungeness Valley's lavender harvests. After arriving at the festival via bus and ferry, herb aficionados can peruse more than 150 booths bursting with lavender-laden goods produced by members of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association, as well artisanal crafts, international foodstuffs, and wine gardens. Carrie Blake Park also serves as a launch pad for bus tours that wind their way through seven regional lavender farms, encompassing 50 acres and 100,000 soil-bound lavender plants. Fair-goers can frolic through each farm's visually unique fields, picking their own lavender to fill vases or grace boutonnières for lonely scarecrows. Workshops, demonstrations, crafts, and live music also pepper plots, rendering each farm a festival unto itself.
On Friday and Saturday, return to Carrie Blake Park's James Center Amphitheatre for live music while enjoying barbecue, wine, and local brews. All transportation for the day is arranged, so fair-goers needn't fret over double-parking their electric wheelbarrows, allowing them to concentrate instead on filling their nostrils with sweet-scented harvests.
