With all of the flowers blooming, springtime generally brings with it the promise of life. But a particular purple one takes its sweet time to flower, but boy is it gorgeous when it does. If you love all things soothing, aromatic, and free, this lavender festival in Washington is the place to be this summer.\nOlympic Peninsula's sunny Sequim turns into a purple paradise and celebrates the Sequim Lavender Festival from July 17 through July 19, 2020. It's reportedly the largest lavender fest in the country too.\nThe rolling farms are open to the public for free and you're even invited to bring a picnic to lunch in the fragrant fields!\nYou can expect live music, 150 craft vendors, delicious eats, and local beers and vino to sip on at Carrie Blake Park. This year, they'll also be selling blackberry lavender wine, you guys. And we presume it's exactly as yum as it sounds.\nThe Sequim-Dungeness region is home to a whopping 110,000 of these lilac posies. So if you don't know where to start your tour, here's a hint.\nA spokesperson for the event told Narcity that one of the largest farms in the region is Graysmarsh Berry & Lavender Farms.\nView this post on Instagram #sequimlavenderfestival #washingtonstate A post shared by Photogenic Pic (@picphotogenic) on Jul 22, 2019 at 8:46pm PDT\nOther fan favorites include Nelson Duckpond & Lavender Farm and Kitty B's Lavender Farm.\nAll of them are free to explore and offer u-pick activities so you can make your own bouquets for as little as $5.\nTheir motto is "dogs are people too" so you can bring your pooch along on a leash to any of these farms.\nView this post on Instagram Gift baskets ready to go!
