The Sequim Lavender Festival® celebrates its 22nd year in the heart of Sequim during the weekend of July 20th to 22nd. Solely produced and managed by the member-growers of the Sequim Lavender Growers Association ™, the Sequim Lavender Festival® will include activities and attractions to delight visitors of all ages.
The Sequim Lavender Street Fair is located in Carrie Blake Community Park this year. This beautiful venue will host more than 150 crafts and lavender booths, a diverse food court, live music and more. Hours are Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the event is free and we offer free parking at the entrance to Blake Ave. Watch for signs coming off Hwy 101 and directions to general parking and ADA parking.
Sequim Lavender Growers Association™ members will offer original and hand-created gifts and personal care items produced from their Sequim lavender harvest at their vendor booths. The imagination is limitless when it involves the ancient and modern uses of lavender—from hydrating oils, lotions and soaps, relaxing eye pillows, culinary ingredients and pet apparel to the beautifully prepared lavender bouquets and loose lavender buds. And, of course, unique and hard-to-locate lavender plants will be available at the Street Fair and the farms.
This lavender-themed event consists of a high-end juried street fair made up of all types of artisans with a wide variety of techniques and products. Offerings include photography, fine art, pottery, metalwork, leatherwork, carvings, jewelry, fibers, glass, pet supplies and precious minerals and rocks. Artisans from throughout the country make the Sequim Lavender Festival one of their must-do seasonal events. We have also invited a number of local non-profit groups to participate with a free booth.
Our famous LavenderStock will take place at the James Center main stage and will feature opening ceremonies on Friday and live music and entertainment all 3 days. Bring your dancing shoes on Saturday night when we will host a “Street” Dance at the James Center from 7:00pm – 9:00pm featuring Black Diamond Junction. CLICK HERE to see the full lineup!
Our Food Court should not be missed! A wonderful array of food is available to our visiting foodies. Don’t miss the BBQ, fish and chips, 6 flavors of lavender ice cream, street tacos, Greek and Thai food, coffee, donuts, kettle corn, elephant ears and more. There are several returning favorites and a couple of new things to try! CLICK HERE to see all the amazing food to choose from.
The Sequim Lavender Festival in the park is pet friendly. Pets must be on leash (we’re in the city limits) and picked up after. There is an enclosed dog park in Carrie Blake Park, and we’ll have a doggy rest area in the shade. Several vendors cater to pets. Some of our farms are also pet friendly, check out this webpage for more info – CLICK HERE.
The FREE Self-Guided Farm Tours will be held from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., during all three Festival days when eight farms and one commercial nursery, are open to the public. Farms include: Blackberry Forest, Graysmarsh Berry & Lavender Farm, Nelson’s Duck Pond & Lavender Farm, Kitty B’s Lavender Farm, Meli’s Lavender, Earth Muffin Lavender, Troll Haven and Peninsula Nursery. Please pick up a Sequim Lavender Festival® map at any farm or the park for locations of these FREE farms, or download one off our website.
