Lavender Festival

Jardin du Soleil Lavender Festival 2020

*the following information is from our 2019 festival.  Please check back often for information regarding the 2020 festival.

 

 

We are super excited to share our families 8th festival and the farms 20th festival with you. Come visit our “Garden of the Sun,” the only farm in Sequim surrounded by hundreds of acres of untouched Dungeness scenery. 

This year we are adding new crafts, new experiences like a VW Photo Booth bus, while continuing all your favorite Jardin du Soleil traditions.  We are also continuing our popular  shuttle service from downtown out to the farm, so you can check out all the weekend has to offer without having to drive yourself around.

While visiting Jardin du Soleil, some of the things we are proud to offer are the experience of getting lost (and found) in our garden maze, listening to the bees while cutting your own fresh bundle and watching your family smile while they enjoy our new and unique family-friendly lavender crafts.

Hang out and listen to great music on the lawn or browse vendors featuring some amazing handcrafted jewelry, art, and clothing. You can even get an original henna design. Our gift shop is fully stocked with Jardin du Soleil signature products and so many new products you’ve just got to see.

We also are super-excited to welcome back Pacific Pantry, who will be serving handmade lavender sausages and other local dishes. Make sure to get to Thor early if you want to try some of Viking Feasts’ chocolate ice cream. Of course he’ll have lavender ice cream too, featuring local Dungeness Creamery milk and Jardin du Soleil Royal Velvet lavender. Local beer, Finn River cider and wine also will be served.

This year we have teamed up with Olympic
Lavender again, to bring you more than 15 acres of Dungeness Lavender Festivities — which means two great farms for one admission. 

By starting your day at the Jardin du Soleil Lavender Festival and taking advantage of our free shuttle service running to the Sequim Farmers Market, other downtown events and Olympic Lavender (every 30 minutes all weekend long), you can experience all that Sequim Lavender Weekend has to offer.

We look forward to seeing you out on the farm! 

The Jardin du Soleil Lavender Festival takes place on July 19-21st.  The price for admission is $10 per person for all three days includes admission to the Olympic Lavender Festival .  Buy your ticket early (before July 1st) and get a $5 coupon to the Jardin du Soleil gift shop.  buy tickets
