Spring is right around the corner and we're thinking of all things floral. This June, you can visit Arizona's lavender farm festival and relish in all the blossoms. There will also be wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, and discussions on lavender growing.
With over 35,000 plants, this epic flower festival in Concho, Arizona will be one of the best places to visit this spring. With multiple dates throughout June, you can pop by as many times as you'd like.
There's only a $5 per person entrance fee and children three years and younger get in for free. If you'd rather splurge, you can opt for a $15 VIP package. It includes entrance into the event, one U-cut lavender bouquet, a fast pass for wine tasting (four varieties), and a coupon for a wine bottle purchase.
There's also free parking located in the lot outside of the farm's gates.
Since there are picnic and dining tables available, you can stop by the food truck, sit at one of the tables, or relax on the grass. It will make for a great date spot with your boo.
Just be sure to leave your pets at home, since they aren't permitted on the festival grounds. However, service animals are welcome.
The festival is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. During this time, you can visit the wine tasting room. You'll be able to sample a variety of drinks and indulge in a cheese plate for an additional cost.
You shouldn't leave without taking a bundle of lavender home. It makes for a great bouquet for any space.
They are $8 each, or three for $20 and five for $25. They even provide you with the clippers to cut your own.
Whether you're a flower enthusiast or wine connoisseur, this festival is filled with all things spring.
And the best part is that it's only a short 3.5-hour road trip away from Phoenix.
