Tuesday, July 17, 2018 is opening day and when we believe the sunflower field will be in full bloom. We plant a dozen varieties of “cutting” sunflowers, with a variety of maturing dates, ensuring that when we start blooming, we will have a gorgeous field for a week to 10 days.
Admission to the Sunflower Festival is $5 per adult, children under 16 are free. Cut sunflowers are $1 per stem. This pricing is a little different than last year, but is simpler.
Admission includes access to the sunflower field for pictures and cutting, games and crafts for the kids, photo props, and shaded picnic areas. Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch or dinner, and stay as long as you would like and take all the pictures you would like. We also have soft drinks, tea and water, chips, cookies, trail mix and ice cream available. We have live music every evening—watch the schedule for who’s playing.
We have gloves, pruners and buckets for you to use to cut sunflowers. We encourage you to bring a bucket with water in your car to get the flowers home. Use our potting bench to bundle your flowers with rubber bands or grab a vase and create your arrangement before you go.
Sunflowers are $1.00 per stem. We are open July 17 – 22 from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. for 2018.
