Lavender Fest Showcases Best of Hill Country
The Texas Hill country city of Blanco will host the 12th annual Lavender Festival from June 10 through 12 on the banks of the Blanco River. Visitors may enjoy Blanco State Park and discover the lavender market on the grounds of the historic Blanco County courthouse.
Vendors and craftsmen offer lavender-related treasures and speakers conduct lavender-related educational programs on the plant’s culinary properties, craft uses, aromatherapy benefits and suitability as a landscape plant.
Touring the Texas Hill Country is a favorite activity, and all farms are within 20 minutes driving distance, so visitors can stop at several in one day to enjoy a variety of themed activities and entertainment. Some of the farms allow people to pick their own lavender.
Admission is free. No pets. For more information and to sign up for farm tours, call 830-833-5101 or visit BlancoChamber.org.
