July Festival Celebrates Lavender in Nisqually Valley
Appreciation of the fragrant and multi-purpose lavender flower, will be celebrated at the
First Annual Mountain Meadow Lavender Festival July 9th and 10th,
just outside the tiny town of Roy, Washington.
Mountain Meadow Farm owners Barbara and Jerry Hulscher, have spent the past 9 years planting and cultivating 8 lavender varieties on the 10 acre farm they inherited from Jerry’s father.
The family-friendly festival will feature fun crafting for kids and adults, music, food, workshops and demonstrations. Dried arrangements, sachets, eye and neck pillows, soap and body products, lavender ice cream, pastries, tea, and even lavender plants will be for sale. Lavender garden experts will be there to share planting tips. An antique car show will add to the festivities.
“It’s time to share what we love with a community event,” says Barbara. “We’ve been so inspired by the Sequim Lavender Festival, we thought that people who can’t make the trip out there would enjoy visiting us.”
The festival takes place
at 12:00-7:00 on Friday, July 9th
and 11:00-7:00 on Saturday, July 10th.
Admission is free.
