The Sequim Lavender Farmers Association plans to start the Sequim Lavender Farm Festival with public tours of six lavender farms during the traditional Sequim Lavender Festival weekend, July 15-17.

“We considered the astonishing beauty of our farms … collectively we have over 100,000 plants in the

ground … the requests of hundreds of our customers, people from around the world and the input from many of the businesses of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, and we will be ready,” said Vickie Oen, spokesman for the farms association.

The six Farms On Tour are Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm, Jardin du Soleil Lavender, Olympic

Lavender, Port Williams Lavender, Purple Haze Lavender and Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm.
Other members participating in the Farm Festival are Angel Farm, Moosedreams Lavender Farms, Victor’s Lavender, Washington Lavender and Weary Gardener.

The farms association is planning for a festival site in the city of Sequim where visitors can meet and interact with other members of the lavender community, enjoy great food, crafts, music and family programs.

Oen said this new event will provide a focus of activity in Sequim and provide a central information and transportation center for the thousands of visitors coming to see the world-famous lavender farms. For more information, contact Vickie Oen, 683-1714 or
