The return of the Tulip and Daffodil festival was an absolute delight this year. Beyond being an amazing festival it was really one of the first big returns to state events. But what about Sequim’s Lavender Festival? Well, it’s still canceled but it turns out you can still enjoy it, just in a different way.

Basically, the Sequim Lavender Festival was canceled early on because well, it was hard to know what the state of Washington’s COVID-19 cases would be, come July. Now July is just a month away and things are really looking up. So with that in mind, you won’t be able to enjoy the typical festival but you can still get up close and personal with some lavender.

There are several farms that you can visit right now all the way until the end of September. At these farms, you can enjoy tours, u-pick, or simply buy lavender directly from farmers. Each farm is a bit of a different experience and has different offerings. So you might as well make a day of it and plan to visit a few farms to get the best of what Sequim has to offer.

And while we’re sad that there is no lavender festival this year we absolutely plan to visit when we can in the safest way possible.
