It’s that time of year. We’re busily preparing for what we hope to be the biggest and best Lavender Festival in the Province.
If you haven’t heard we broke ground for our new hospitality facility on the Monday following last year’s festival and although the construction has been delayed we will be ready to roll out the red carpet in our new facility just in time for this year’s festival. This has been both exciting, frustrating and well a time to revisit the event design for Lavender Fest 2017. (Hence the delay in getting this post up)
There are some changes this year. Due to the construction we have lost some customer parking but can accommodate this with our property across the street. Another change is that our Serenity Lavender store will also be tented. It will be impossible to accommodate the foot traffic we expect in our new retail space. This should all encourage visitors to walk thru Artisan’s Alley. We will also be offering a special 3 course meal and other lavender treats in our new restaurant for the festivities and a number of classes leading up to the festival.
The Festival will be held on June 24th and 25th
10 am- 5pm
at 130 County Road 50 East, Colchester, Ontario
We are looking for new artists and artisans – original works only to join us in this event and so if you know of anyone please have them contact us or send them a copy of the application form.
As with any other art show, we ask that you provide your own tent. Once again we will be advertising with Blackburn Radio,distributing lawn signs throughout the city and county, listing the event on various websites and promoting it with Travel Ontario. This year with the exchange rate we will be heavily promoting the event in Michigan and Ohio on NPR radio capturing the American daytrippers. .
We hope to make this the best lavender festival and can only do so by having quality vendors, like you, and would love to see you again this year..
