The Fourteenth Annual Michigan Lavender Festival at Blake's Orchard in Armada, has earned a reputation for delivering quality activities and first-rate vendors in a serene, lavender-filled atmosphere — and this year is no exception. As festival Founder and Creative Director Jennifer Vasich describes it, “The lavender festival is a symphony for the senses.”
Relax and rejuvenate to the essence of Fragrant Lavender swaying in the breeze. Enjoy a gourmet lunch in the shade while sipping on a glass of ice cold Lavender Lemonade. Celebrate the "Grandmother of Herbs" in all her splendor with a series of events centered around the fragrant purple plant, including: workshops, demonstrations, "Cooking With Lavender" classes & more.
With just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of city life, the Lavender Festival is a perfect mid-summer getaway. Not only is this event a celebration of all the wonders of Lavender, but also an event that knits together local, talented artisans of one-of-a-kind hand-made goods!
The Michigan Lavender Festival is proud to be a "Made-In-Michigan" Event, featuring over 125 Michigan artists, craftspeople and local area farms. Festival highlights include a farmer's market and petting farm, wellness classes and wagon rides to tour the farm and orchards.
The festival, which is held the third week in July every year, is the largest lavender event in the Midwest. The 2016 lavender festival will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 15-17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The 3-day event will be held at Blake's Orchard, located at 17985 Armada Center Road in Armada, Michigan.
