Purple Haze Lavender Farm will hold its inaugural Purple Haze Daze during Sequim’s 19th Annual Lavender Weekend, July 17 to19, 2015. Purple Haze Lavender Farm is located at 180 Bell Bottom Road, Sequim, WA. Admission is $10.00 for all three days.
This three day Purple Haze Daze lavender party will include the music of some iconic musical figures. Geoffrey Castle will be wielding his world famous electronic violin. Aussie Blake Noble will delight crowds with his 12 string guitar and didgeridoo. Regional funk band Open Country Joy will also be on hand all three days with their eclectic blend of funk, country and original favorites. There will also be additional musical offerings and the possibility of some surprises.
Blondie’s Plate, one of the Olympic Peninsula’s rising stars in the restaurant world, will provide gourmet food and an array of beverages. This will include their specialty drink The Moscow Mule and a favorite at Purple Haze Daze, The Lavender Margarita.
Attendees of Purple Haze Daze looking for unique handcrafted items will enjoy the twenty plus artisan vendors displaying their wares throughout the farm. Photo ops abound everywhere on Purple Haze’s twelve acres of flowing lavender fields. A stop in the orchard will provide an opportunity to meet Bob and Shirley, the farm’s peacock pair, and a unique collection of egg laying hens.
Should one wish to take home some lavender goodies, the farm’s gift shop is stocked full with Purple Haze‘s own line of culinary delights, bath and body products and lavender home care items. The farm also has its own ice cream shoppe with a variety of delicious lavender ice cream, tea, coffee, and lavender lemonade. Those looking for a more permanent souvenir will have over a dozen varieties of lavender plants to choose from to take home and plant in their own garden.
You will want to attend this family fun event – especially if you missed the the Northwest Wine and Cheese Tour on the Olympic Peninsula in May.
