Colorado's ONLY lavender festival in historic downtown Palisade.
The Friday motor coach tours to lavender farms in the North Fork Valley as well as the Palisade area will kick off the event. In addition to the all-day farm tour, we've added a new half-day tour of local lavender gardens. You'll learn about lavender varieties grown here and get a chance to talk with the growers. There are a limited number of tickets available for both tours so purchase your tickets early.
The Saturday Festival is in Palisade Memorial Park. You won't want to miss our main event. There will be demonstrations, seminars, and workshops. Free entertainment including music, magic, horse carriage rides and art show at the Blue Pig. Enjoy a variety of lavender inspired products, cooking demos and the creative works of local artists and artisans. Entrance to the park is free.
Experience a gourmet meal prepared by guest chefs on Saturday evening at the Wine Country Inn. The feast will be served with local wines. Take a peek at the menu for the Lavender Fest Gala Dinner: "Spike it with Lavender". Purchase tickets in advance. Extend your evening with a discounted room at the Wine Country Inn.
Sunday is the free self-guided tour of lavender farms on the Western Slope from Paonia to Fruita to Palisade and points in between.
