Our Beginning…

In 2009, the Lavender Association of Western Colorado (LAWC) was formed as a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization.

In 2011, LAWC organized Colorado’s first Lavender Festival and every year since, our Annual Festival has grown.

In 2018, the desire to move the Association to a statewide focus was begun.

Our 2019 9th Annual Lavender Festival will debut the name change to Lavender Association of Colorado (LAC).

We are also proud to announce our 10th Anniversary!

And the 9th Annual Colorado Lavender Festival!

LAC members are growers and producers of a wide variety of high-quality products, located across the State of Colorado. We are proud to have 30 farms as members, representing over 40,000 plants in the ground, and continuing to expand. The 2018 8th Annual Lavender Festival was estimated to have 4000 attendees!

The Lavender Association of Colorado welcomes you to join us in sponsoring the 9th Annual Colorado Lavender Festival. We invite you to partner with us, and share in the exposure and excitement this event brings to our area and our state. Our members are not just growers but also members of communities who desire mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with prominent and respected businesses such as yours.

We look forward to working with you and to develop a relationship that will last for years to come.

    Lavender – Colorado’s Newest Cash Crop and Agri-Tourism Destination

    Prized for its perfume, medicinal properties and beautiful color, lavender has been one of the most popular herbs for centuries. Currently its use is enjoying resurgence due to a societal emphasis on health, relaxation, stress reduction and culinary desires.

    Uses of lavender include: fresh and dried bundles with flower arrangements, essential oils and hydrosols, fine handcrafted decorative arts. Lavandula x-intermedia, Lavindin, is used in health & body care items; lotions, soaps, mists, pillows, potpourri and sachets.

    Lavandula Angustifolia is used to accent food and beverages, as well as health & body care items.

    As a crop, lavender is well-suited to the Colorado environment. It is a drought-tolerant and low maintenance perennial. Lavender thrives in our hot, dry, high elevation and lean soil.

    Audience

    With the growing popularity of lavender, our audience is also growing. People purposely seek out lavender because they love it. Our Lavender Motor-Coach Tours on Friday attract predominately females of higher income brackets. Yet, we see individuals who are enjoying their years of retirement looking for joyous, friendly events to talk about when they return home. Our Saturday Festival at Palisade Veteran’s Memorial Park brings in people of all ages looking for local, home-grown, and handcrafted products. Sunday’s Self-Guided Tours, allow those weekend visitors to stop along their routes home, finding lavender farms and shops throughout the Western Slope. Lavender is an ever growing
    business and showground, just as our audience is, from statewide to nationwide.

    We are also a proud member and supporter of the United States Lavender Growers Association.
