Anyone that’s visited Rancho de las Golondrinas in Santa Fe knows that it’s steeped in history.
In addition to educating visitors about Spanish Colonial ways of life, the living museum also offers various festivals and events throughout the year. One of the museum’s regular events is the Herb and Lavender Fair. This year, will mark its 10th year and will be from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The fair provides visitors with the opportunity to listen to Marimba and Flamenco music while celebrating their love of herbs and lavender. In addition, there will also be tours of the Las Golondrinas herb gardens, arts and crafts vendors and lavender crafts vendors.
Those seeking advice about herbs can visit with the curandera, or traditional herbalist. Visitors will also be treated to lemonade, bread and jelly, all containing lavender. They can also make their own lavender wand with Eddie the Lavender Guy. The festival will also offer presentations about lavender’s healing properties and there will be demonstrations on how to make soap and distill lavender.
