Games & Contests

Passport Game

This year those attending the festival will once again have the opportunity to play the Passport Game.

Guests move through the festival searching for highly visible designated locations where they “stamp their passports.” Completed passports are then returned to one of the information booths and entered for drawings which are held often through the day.

Prizes consist of certificates (valued at $20 – $50) redeemable at the festival from one of the many vendors displaying lavender products, plants, jewelry, art, and novelties. Take the certificate to the booth to redeem your prize.

First drawing is at noon – Last drawing at 3:30 pm
