Roswell Lavender FestivalJoin us for the 9th Annual Roswell Lavender Festival, inspired by Barrington Hall's own lavender queen, Evelyn Simpson, a descendant of Barrington King. The festival is a celebration of all things lavender and highlights the many varieties, uses, and folk remedies associated with this ancient plant. The festival activities include shopping, eating, lavender and plant demonstrations, live music, children's activities, crafts, yoga & meditation, and a return to the Enchanted Fairy Hollow to craft your own fairy house.

For more information, call 770-640-3855 or email Michele Glazer at mglazer@roswellgov.com.
