The Lavender Festival July 11-12 will be at the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg.
Former Chehalem Cultural Center Board Chair, current Center Board member, and Arts Alliance of Yamhill County President, Kris Horne talked with Lynda Phillippi on Arts Alive about the new and improved Lavender Festival and the associated Paint Out and Art Show.
The Lavender Festival has been going in Yamhill County for 10 years. This year it will move from the town of Yamhill to Newberg at the Chehalem Cultural Center. There will be craft venders, food venders Wine and Beer providers, and even Lavender product vendors. There will be the usual self guided tour of the Yamhill County lavender farms.
As part of the Lavender Festival, local artist Susan Day created a lavender fields paint out with an art show during the Festival itself. The Chehalem Cultural Center's ballroom will be used for the Art Show. The Paint out will begin on June 25th. There will be two classes for the show, professional and emerging artists.
