Dear Friends of the Festival: We are so excited to having you at our weekend event! I have some great people working on our event and I hope that you are looking forward to coming.
One of these great people are our friends at the Clarion Inn Hotel on Horizon Drive. They will serve as our host hotel this year. Jeff and April are preparing a warm welcome for you. The hotel is 100% smoke free. Each sleep room provides a coffee maker, flat screen 32” television with HBO & ESPN, a free newspaper, local phone calls, and wireless internet. Other amenities include both indoor and outdoor pools with spas, an exercise room, an onsite restaurant, and a large atrium and recreation center.
Our special hotel rate with the Clarion Inn is $79.00 per night and includes a hot complimentary breakfast. Click here for rates or call – and ask to book a room under “Colorado Lavender Festival” and the same rate will apply. This special room rate is available starting July 9th thru July 11th. However, if you need another night they will be glad to accommodate you. The staff is providing us a hospitality room which will serve as a central location to meet before the tours disembark on Friday and is available to the guest for the weekend if you want to meet and visit new friends that you make during your stay.
Welcome and thank you for your interest in our lavender festival being held this year July 10 – 12. My name is Pam Johnson and I am this year’s director for our three day event. Over the next several months I will keep you posted on our plans as they develop.
Routes are being put together now for the Friday bus tours, speakers are being contacted for the festival seminars, and new events & demonstrations are being planned. Registration for the Friday bus tours and the Saturday seminars will be posted on this site so continue to check back to this page for updates.
We are very excited to bring this event to you and we look forward to meeting you the 2nd weekend of July.
The Friday motor coach tours to lavender farms on the western slope.

Sunday is the free lavender farms tour on the Western Slope from Paonia to Fruita to Palisade and points in between.
