A sweet-smelling festival is happening near Toronto this summer, and you can spend the day getting lost in lavender fields. The Giving Place, a lavender and honey farm in Mount Albert, is hosting a two-day festival dedicated to this fragrant purple flower.

The Lavender Festival is running on July 9 and 10, and you can enjoy a range of activities. Visitors can expect to take part in yoga, meditation, tarot card reading, henna, drumming, and more. There will also be vendors on site to shop from.

On top of the activities, the festival will offer tons of drool-worthy treats. You can bite into cookies, candy apples, and macaroons, as well as lavender-flavoured treats like lemon lavender bars, lavender cookies, and lavender scones.

This year, the farm has added a High Tea experience for two to the event. The High Tea costs $80 and must be booked in advance as tables are limited.

The property itself is a stunning place to explore. You can visit a wildflower field that's bursting with colour, shop at the boutique, and unwind at a heart-shaped labyrinth overlooking a pond.

The farm is also home to around 30 rescue bunnies that enjoy roaming around the area. You can see these furry creatures from the "bunny sitting area," where you can also watch the goats, sheep, ducks, chickens and pigs.

There are several other gorgeous lavender farms to check out this summer, including a new one that just opened near Toronto. Tickets for the Lavender Festival are available online for $10 per person.
