Entertainment, vendors, and of course, lavender on tap Saturday

Damali Lavender Winery’s eighth annual Lavenderfest is scheduled for Saturday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s fun for the whole family, offering a chance to walk through fragrant fields, make lavender crafts, watch demonstrations on distilling essential oils and the other uses of lavender, try delicious food and visit a wine garden.

Artisan vendors will also be on site and the Washington Brothers and Jonas Shandel will provide entertainment at the farm at 3500 Telegraph Rd.

Entry is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and $2 for kids under 12. Two dollars from each adult will go to the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society.

Organizers are asking everyone to please leave furry pets at home.
