This 2-day lavender festival near Toronto features wildflower fields and a waterfront labyrinth

A fragrant festival is taking place near Toronto this summer, and you can get lost in fields of lavender all day long. The Giving Place, a lavender and honey farm in Mount Albert, hosts a two-day festival dedicated to this fragrant purple flower.

The Lavender Festival takes place on July 9 and 10 and you can enjoy a range of activities. Visitors can expect to participate in yoga, meditation, tarot card reading, henna, drumming, and more. Vendors will also be present for shopping.

In addition to the activities, the festival offers plenty of drool-worthy treats. You can bite into cookies, candy apples, and macaroons, as well as lavender-flavored treats like lemon lavender bars, lavender cookies, and lavender scones.

This year the farm has added a High Tea experience for two to the event. The High Tea costs $80 and must be reserved in advance as tables are limited.

The property itself is a wonderful place to explore. You can visit a field of wildflowers bursting with color, shop at the boutique, and relax in a heart-shaped labyrinth overlooking a pond.

The farm is also home to about 30 rescue bunnies who love to roam the area. You can see these furry creatures from the “bunny sitting area” where you can also view the goats, sheep, ducks, chickens and pigs.

There are several other beautiful lavender farms to visit this summer, including a new one that just opened near Toronto. Tickets for the Lavender Festival are available online for $10 per person.
