The third weekend of July brings crowds eager to waltz through purple fields during the Sequim Lavender Festival on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. And this year the fest takes place July 19–21, 2024. The town of Sequim is totally road-trip worthy anytime, and there’s even a self-guided driving tour of Sequim-area lavender farms.

But you don’t necessarily need a festival to visit beautiful lavender fields. We’ve rounded up 14 gorgeous lavender farms, around Sequim and up and down the Sound, that are perfect for a family outing this summer.

First, a few notes: Peak lavender season is July through August, but be sure to call ahead or check your lavender farm pick’s website to confirm that flowers are blooming before you make a trip. Unless otherwise noted, admission to the farms is free and no reservation is required. Fees for U-pick lavender stems vary and are usually around $5–$15 per bunch. Lastly, bees love lavender as much as humans do, so if you want to avoid them, visit the gift shop instead of the fields.
