The Finest Celebration of Lavender and Art! The Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg, Oregon will host the 2016 Willamette Valley Lavender Festival and Plein Air Art Show on July 9-10. Spend a leisurely day enjoying a variety of juried art and craft booths, distinctive lavender products, the plein air art show, and lavender in myriad forms. Talented musicians set the mood while you relax, enjoy a glass of lavender beer or wine, or peruse the art.
Over 100 artists will display original paintings done en plein air during the Oregon Lavender Paint Out. The Paint Out takes place in the beautiful lavender fields of Oregon in the weeks prior to the Show. The Paint Out and Art Show attract both amateur and professional artists from around the Northwest and beyond. Garden art, jewelry, pottery, woodcraft, and original art are also in the line-up. And of course, many lavender products will be featured from crafters and lavender farmers.
There are several nearby lavender farms we encourage you to visit. Each one has something different to offer. Red Ridge Farms has a shop, and on site wine tasting. Chehalem Flats has an adorable farm store featuring many local specialty food items. Wayward Winds Lavender will be hosting several vintage themed vendors. Mountainside Lavender has an extensive selection of lavender available for u-pick.
The Festival offers stellar music and other activities for your enjoyment. Some of the featured bands include Scratchdog String Band, Rae Gordon Band, The Band Pending Black, Mary Kadderly, and Jake Blair Band. You can find the full music schedule and other Festival information on the official website: www.wvlavenderfestival.org
