The stunning lavender fields, colourful gardens, interpretation centre and delightful boutique will win you over, not to mention the immersive experience created by Moment Factory. This summer, let yourself fall in love with an enchanting place made for relaxing, picnicking and strolling through the flowers with your sweetheart, your family, or your loyal four-legged friends!

Thursday June 20 marks the official opening of Bleu Lavande. Admission will be free for all and the day will include an afternoon press conference. You’ll have the chance to meet Lysanne Richard, a high diver and Bleu Lavande’s new ambassador, as well as Isabeau Corriveau, world-class harpist. New this summer, you will also enjoy a recently released documentary tracing the history of Bleu Lavande and lavender in Quebec, as well as a new bar service offering wines from local vineyards.

Summer sounds and fresh flavours

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Blues Lavande evenings on Thursdays and Fridays. Make the most of these gentle evenings to take in sunsets and listen to talented musicians playing a blues repertoire. There’s also Musical Tuesdays, promising magical nights, from Isabeau Corriveau’s enchanting harp to sublime jazz duos with Jon Gearey. To add a gourmet accent to your summer experience, make sure to savour succulent grilled meals paired with the best local beers on Beer and BBQ Nights every Wednesday.
