Rancho de las Golondrinas Herb & Lavender Fair

The lavender is just now beginning to bloom in the gardens of The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn, but lavender lovers will want to head out to Rancho de las Golondrinas this weekend for the annual Herb and Lavender Fair.  The event takes place on June 22 and 23, 2013, from 10am-4pm.

Stroll the bucolic setting of Rancho de las Golondrinas, a 200-acre Spanish colonial rancho and living history museum, while learning about the uses of lavender, buying herb and lavender products, and sipping on lavender lemonade while touring the ranch's herb gardens.  You may also choose to consult with a "curandera", a traditional herbalist and healer, make a lavender wand, and shake your booty to the live marimba music from Kumusha.

Admission is just $8 for adults, $5 for Seniors and Teens, and free for children 12 and under.   The ranch is south of Santa Fe:  Take 1-25 South, then Exit 276 and follow the signs for Las Golondrinas.
