Ojai’s Lavender Festival – A Great June Getaway


“Lavender Month” was officially proclaimed June 2015 by the Ojai City Council and we can’t wait for the festivities to begin. Ojai Valley is known for lavender fields, and the great artisans on hand will be crafting everything from delicate wreaths and sachets; tangy vinegars and olive oils; scented soaps, candles, beauty oils and skin care products; specialty wines, liqueurs, cocktails and lemonades; signature sweets, savories and ice cream; plus lavender themed art, jewelry, apparel, live plants and more. When? The 12th Annual Ojai Valley Lavender Festival is Saturday, June 27th from 10a.m to 5p.m. at Libbey Park in the heart of downtown Ojai.

Under a 2-hour drive, this year’s Lavender Festival is bigger and better — well worth the car-ride for there will be something for everyone in the family. A great weekend-getaway. Hurry and get your accommodation as rooms are booking fast.

This year’s Festival promises over 100 food and product vendors; and a full schedule of activities including live music, games, prizes, speakers, sampling, workshops, demonstrations and a farm tour. Local merchants plan to offer festival day specials during the community wide
celebration of everything lavender. Ojai expects several thousand visitors to attend the free event, and will provide designated festival parking with shuttle service to the park. Additional information and directions are available on the website: www.ojaivalleylavenderfestival.org
