Preparations are underway for Roswell, Georgia’s 3rd annual Lavender Festival held on the grounds of historic home Barrington Hall on Saturday, June 8, 2013, from 10:00AM until 4:00PM.

The well-attended free event will feature a full day devoted to all things lavender. The property’s carriage house doubles as a demonstration classroom with lectures, craft activities and exhibits taking place on the hour. The 2013 schedule is still under wraps but previous and popular topics included lavender wand making, lavender bath salts, and presentations on cultivating one’s own lavender plantings. Throughout the day, specialty foods can be sampled with sweet and savory items such as lavender ice cream, lavender cookies and lavender tabbouleh.

As festival-goers arrive, they’re greeted by helpful Lavender Queens and provided with a map of the property which highlights the many different areas of the festival: the vendor section featuring art and antiques, a pottery exhibit with wheel demonstration, plant and herb sales and other specialty garden items, along with a food and picnic area. The front yard of the historic home is designated for children’s activities with crafts, games, and a special visit from the Lavender Fairy. Also popular is “The Zen Zone,” an area solely devoted to the healing properties of lavender and featuring such techniques as crystal bowl therapy, raiki healing and aromatherapy.

While under the relaxing spell of lavender, the musicians from local venue Ragamuffin Music Hall contribute to the festival-like atmosphere with a sampling of Americana, bluegrass, and folk music

Vendor opportunities are still available. For further information, please contact festival organizer Janet Rigsby at Barrington Hall at 770.640.3855 or log onto our website at www.southerntrilogy.com.
