We offer a wide variety of events throughout the length of the festival.

We open with our Friday Night VIP event which provides an intimate shopping experience with our hand crafted vendors. This limited access event is a dream come true for all of those diehard shoppers!

On our open festival weekends we have a line up of very impressive, hand made craftsman and food vendors, over 115 to be exact! Along with this shopping experience we offer hay rides, a farm animal petting area, a children’s area for the young ones in your life, TONS of photo booths and photography opportunities, and lots of educational opportunities as well.

During the week we host 3 field trip days. We have days for preschoolers, senior citizens and special needs children and adults. These days are set aside for these groups to visit and not be overwhelmed by the crowds that the weekends draw.

During the weekday evenings we have an impressive, unique line up of opportunities well. We offer two nights of our famous sunset dinners. Dinner is catered by a local church group who raises money to be used to build and update schools in the Dominican Republic. This is a four course sit down meal all while enjoying it outside amongst the sunflowers. If you’re looking for something more informal, you can catch a night or two of our very popular goat yoga or sunset yoga!

Our 2024 sunflower festival will be held September 6-15, 2024. Check under “events” for more details.
