Welcome to our Blooming Season Concerts!
These concerts are debuting in 2017 and will replace our festival that we have hosted for 13 years. It’s time for a change. Time for a relaxing experience listening to music, having a picnic, and wandering in the lavender fields.
What happened to the Lavender Festival?
We decided to focus on what we do best – grow lavender and turn it into the great products you have come to love.
Lavender activities are going on everyday during the summer in one form or another. We are open to the public for about 2 1/2 months during which you can watch us harvesting lavender, pick some yourself, learn about stripping the lavender off the stems and cleaning it, watch our distilling process, and simply wander in the fields.
Our community has an awesome Arts and Crafts Festival the 2nd weekend in August that has way more artists to choose from. There are also several Art Tours all year at various times so art is easy to find on Whidbey Island.
Tell me about the concert series!
On five Saturdays there will be a band or single musician who will regale you with songs, music, and stories from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. See the Blooming Season Schedule for who is playing this summer.
During concert Saturday we will still be working on harvesting, processing and distilling lavender. There will be U-Pick available, for you to harvest your own lavender.
There will be sandwiches available (from The Cove Café), as well as our signature cookies and ice cream.
