About the Central Coast Lavender Festival

The seventh annual Central Coast Lavender Festival will held in the Downtown Paso Robles City Park on July 11, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The free event celebrates the lavender industry–an emerging local product–and features lavender producers from throughout the county, who will serve tastes of lavender cuisine, sampling of lavender oils, dipping sauces, lavender ice cream, and education on lavender, lavender growing, and sustainable farming practices.
There will be free seminars on distilling lavender, benefits of lavender, and demonstrations throughout the day in the City Park Gazebo.
Features: Music, a special children’s activities area, local lavender growers and vendors, arts, a Lavender Tasting Garden with tastes to purchase, and free samples and demonstrations.
Accompanying the Lavender Festival is an informal juried arts show, plus a variety of food and festival vendors.
