Change of plans! The Original Michigan Lavender Festival has been rescheduled for August 13-15, 2020.

We certainly have plenty of room to accommodate! Festival hours of operation are as follows: Thursday, August 13th: 10 AM – 5 PM Friday, August 14th: 10 AM – 5 PM Saturday, August 15th: 10 AM – 5 PM Although the lavender will have already bloomed for the season, we are welcoming several Lavender Farms and Growers to our event who will be showcasing FABULOUS lavender products that they create right on their farm! This years "after the harvest" event will perhaps be our best collection of lavender goodness to date. With so many events being cancelled this year, we are very grateful that we can still put on a show. We promise that what we have planned for you is nothing short of spectacular. Stay tuned for the upcoming list of activities and attractions as they are announced.

About the festival: Since 2002, The Original Michigan Lavender Festival has offered a true “Symphony for the Senses”. When you step inside the doors, the subtle yet sweet aroma of lavender will begin to calm your nerves. Soothing harp music will add to your relaxing experience as it echoes throughout the event. The beautiful artisan booths will welcome you in with their impressive displays of handmade goodness for a wonderful shopping experience, and a variety of lavender themed classes, artist workshops and demonstrations offer a hands-on learning experience. After growing exponentially over the years, this event has moved from the back yard of its founder to two other locations over the past 18 years to better accommodate guests. Now well-established at our fourth and final location, visitors are able to spread out and enjoy even more lavender along with excellent parking and accommodations. Conveniently located off I-69 and M-53, the Original Michigan Lavender Festival now takes place at the Eastern Michigan Fairgrounds in Imlay City. We are the largest lavender festival on the east coast and will showcase Michigan’s top lavender farms, growers and producers along with more than 175 Artists + Makers at our 2020 show. Our festival also features a Food Truck Gathering with Metro-Detroit’s BEST Food Trucks, and guests will be able to learn about the many benefits of lavender, including: growing, harvesting, cooking, crafting along with medicinal and aromatic uses for this beloved herb. Don't miss the 18th Annual Michigan Lavender Festival. It's the most fragrant and relaxing event of the season!
