The Lavender Association of Western Colorado is proud to host Colorado's ONLY lavender festival in historic downtown Palisade. Located in Western Colorado along the I-70 corridor, getting here is a quick 4-hour drive or 1-hour flight from Denver or Salt Lake City.
We are proud to be teaming up with The Daily Sentinel and Wine Country Inn, our diamond sponsors for 2014. With the help of the Palisade Chamber of Commerce, we are planning the best festival ever.
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. More details about the tours can be found here. 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. Curious what vendors are coming? Click here.
Experience a gourmet meal prepared by guest chefs on Saturday evening at the Wine Country Inn. Purchase tickets in advance for the Lavender Fest Gala Dinner.
Sunday is the free self-guided tour of lavender farms on the Western Slope from Paonia to Fruita to Palisade and points in between.
