This festival is just as lovely as it sounds. Breathe in Western Colorado’s peaceful setting, where snow-melt waters from the Rocky Mountains nourish high-altitude farms.
Coloradans love coming to Palisade to ride bikes alongside grape and fruit orchards, to sip wine from a winery’s patio, and to sample Colorado’s freshest and most delicious fruit. Beyond this, however, are flourishing lavender fields filled with distinctively scented purple flowers that bloom in Palisade each summer before being harvested for use in culinary and medicinal applications and aromatherapy.
The climate of Colorado’s Western Slope is well suited to growing two varieties of the plant—the French and English—and you can learn everything there is to learn about them at the Annual Colorado Lavender Festival.
This festival, scheduled for June 28th through June 30th is just as lovely as it sounds. During this weekend-long event, you can breathe in Western Colorado’s peaceful setting, where snow-melt waters from the Rocky Mountains nourish high-altitude farms. Enjoy a self-guided Farm Tour while marveling at how endless varieties of lavender thrive under Western Colorado’s dry climate and lean soils.
Attend one of the festival’s educational seminars or demonstrations, which cover essential oils, the basics of planting and growing lavender, Reflexology, how to make a wreath out of lavender, and more.
