Sequim Lavender Festival

Sequim Lavender Festival: Days of activities, entertainment, and street fairs centered around Sequim lavender farms and the many lavender products of "America’s Provence."

For the last 20-plus years, the Sequim Lavender Growers Association, with over 30 member farms all dedicated to growing acres and acres of sweet-smelling, antioxidant-rich, antiseptic, and delicious lavender, has been a driving force behind the annual Sequim Lavender Festival.

Why not celebrate all those gloriously purple fields!

The third full weekend in July on the North Olympic Peninsula is dedicated to All Things 'Lavender,!

The 2024 Sequim Lavender Festival is Scheduled!

Mark your calendars for July 19 - 20 - 21, 2024!

Between lavender farm tours, a massive street fair, and non-stop entertainment, all with a wide variety of Northwest cuisine (including lavender flavors), the Sequim Lavender Festival has become a highlight of Sequim summers.

The links below contain many more details. Details for the 2020 Lavender Festival have not yet been finalized, but when they are, you'll find them at the links below.

Why a Lavender Festival in Sequim WA?

1995 was the year that a few local Sequim individuals met privately, alarmed at the looming loss of a rural way of life in the Sequim-Dungeness valley. Subdivisions of pastel-colored, cookie-cutter homes were sprouting up in the the once-agricultural fields and pastures throughout the valley.

It was determined that the best way to forestall further development might be to band together and once again actually use those many fields for agricultural purposes.

And one particular dry-footed crop that does supremely well in the semi-arid, rain-shadowed climate of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley was soon identified: lavender.

The Sequim Lavender Growers Association (SLGA) arose from this initial, inauspicious meeting.

In 1996, the 8 member farms plied their wares quietly at the local Saturday Farmer's Market.

They've come a long way since 1996. Today, with over 30 lavender farms on the Olympic Peninsula alone, the Sequim-Dungeness Valley is recognized as the Lavender Capital of the USA.

The Sequim Lavender Festival has grown as well, now hosting an exciting annual, lavender-themed, three-day-all-day bash supported both by local businesses and by the many artisans and entertainers who come from far and wide to participate in the festival.

And when you discover the amazing benefits of lavender oil, you'll discover even more reasons to celebrate lavender!
