Whew! What a party!

Well, judging from the crowds, this Lavender Festival is bigger and better than ever; super music, great food, incredible artisan vendors, and tons of happy people.  Cars were stacked up clear down the road last night still at 4pm and the music was still rocking. Six bands in all played at the farm yesterday and they were all just unbelievable! “Final Approach” started their set at 10am and we finished up with “Copernicus Twist” at 7pm or so. The crowds were huge this year and we can only anticipate that it will continue today. Cisco Morris aired his weekly tv show yesterday morning on KING 5  that he filmed here at Purple Haze last week. We’ve got a feeling that this exposure will increase the crowds to the farm today, the last day of the annual festival. We start harvesting in earnest this next week and will continue to stay open to the public everyday throughout the summer. Bring em on!

  • Your farm was the last one I visited on this week-end and I am really glad of that. It left a great impression and was a beautiful final “note” for the week-end. This was the first time my husband and I had attended, but it won’t be the last. Thank you.

  • What a party, no kidding!

    The weather was perfect and the farm was beautiful. Not really too crowded but very festive. The food was wonderful and I really enjoyed the ice cream!

    It has been too long since I was down on the farm for the festival and won’t make that mistake again. Next year I will just spend the whole day a Purple Haze. Eat, drink, relax, listen to the music and inhale lavender!

    I heard a rumor the farmhouse was for weekly rental. Is that true?

    Thanks for a great experience!

  • Thanks for your comments, we sure had a fine time but it was exhausting. It’s interesting regarding your comment about it not being too crowded as it was our largest turnout yet, about 45,000 people. And yes, the farmhouse is now a vacation rental. Right now it is being rented by the night. Check it out on our website at http://www.purplehazelavender.com for more info. Thanks again, Mike Reichner, pres., Purple Haze
