6th ANNUAL LAVENDER FESTIVAL
June 30 – July 1, 2018
Serenity Lavender is proud to host their 6th Annual Lavender Festival!
This event was inspired by the beautiful aromas flavours and colours of lavender. While Mother Nature wasn’t kind to their beautiful lavender plants this winter, with the freeze thaw cycles we suffered significant crop loss and plant damage, Serenity Lavender took this opportunity to redesign their lavender gardens and to teach our customers how to assess plants for cold damage and how to prune plants.
This year the festival incorporates their recently opened hospitality facility at North 42 Degrees Estate Winery and Bistro 42 and they’re offering activities for adults and children alike.
For adults there is a Tai Chi demonstration, yoga class, alcohol Ink class, lavender wand demonstration, cooking demonstration, lavender tours, artists and artisan alley, live music all day long, and of course artisanal crafted lavender culinary, bath and body products made with their farm grown lavender.
They’re also ready to entertain your children with whimsical storytelling and readings from local children’s authors, musical interludes, exploration of the lavender labyrinth, chalk art area, the magical wishing tree and if they’re lucky they may even witness the dance of the butterflies.
The event takes place from 10:00am to 5:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free and food and beverages are available for purchase. Reservations are required for Bistro 42.
