Who We Are
The mission of the Santa Barbara Lavender Festival is to demonstrate and promote the many uses of lavender, to broaden public awareness, and to educate potential growers/farmers about the benefits of plants that celebrate our Mediterranean climate.
A festival to celebrate everything lavender was inaugurated in 2004. In 2009, the Ojai Lavender Festival became the Ojai Valley Lavender Festival with new management, mission and goals. In 2023, the festival moved to Santa Barbara and is now the Santa Barbara Lavender Festival.
The Santa Barbara Mission will be filled with mellow crowds who come for the marvelous sights, sounds, and soothing aromas of the many varieties and textures of lavender products. Living lavender plants and fresh bouquets provide further immersion into the day. Vendors never fail to surprise and delight us with new and unique wares. Knowledgeable growers and producers offer talks on all things lavender. A background of live music weaves the day into a magical, unforgettable experience.
