There’s an herb that everyone has tried at least once — lavender. The Summer Solstice Lavender Festival at Peaceful Acres Lavender Farm is an opportunity to walk through fields of the lovely plant and learn about all the different ways it is used. Vendors will set up among the lavender fields with an assortment of natural and craft items ranging from glassware and local honey to birds and baby wallabies. Chef Benjamin Mentrup will prepare lavender-infused edibles, and the fest also offers attendees the opportunity to cut their own bundles of lavender. 


10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22. Free. 2387 Martinsville Road, Martinsville, peacefulacreslavenderfarm.com.
