Barrington Hall Hosts 9th Annual Lavender Festival

Post Date:05/06/2019 11:00 AM

The 9th annual Lavender Festival will return to the historic grounds of Barrington Hall on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Inspired by Evelyn Simpson, a descendant of Barrington King, this celebration of all things lavender will feature the many uses associated with this ancient plant. This free event will allow festival-goers to experience classes and demonstrations, lavender food samples, arts and crafts, antiques, food vendors, children’s activities, and more!

  • Children’s activities – crafts, historic games and music
  • Lavender inspired demonstrations – create lavender wands, learn to make French crepes and a bouquet garni, make a bouquet in a teacup
  • Enchanted Fairy Hollow – participants will create whimsical habitats with natural materials from the property.
  • Vendors galore – food and beverage, art, textiles, bath and body, jewelry, plants and garden accessories – too many to list one-of-a-kind and unique items for purchase
  • The Zen Zone will be devoted to the healing properties of lavender, featuring natural therapies, guided meditation, crystal bowl healing and outdoor yoga classes. 
  • Live music all day featuring local Atlanta musicians: Battlefield Collective, Davin McCoy and Highbeams
  • Food trucks, beer and wine (lavender beer!) and frozen treats 

Special thanks to the generous sponsorship of local businesses Pinnacle Home Improvement and Hanalei SUP Yoga.

Barrington Hall is located at 535 Barrington Drive. Parking is available at Roswell Presbyterian Church and Roswell City Hall, with trolleys providing ongoing transportation between the parking lot and festival entrance. No festival parking is available at Barrington Hall. A small participation fee may be required for some demonstrations.
