Running from August 23 until September 17, 2023, the Harrison Sunflower Festival’s winding pathways throughout the fields, bursting with nearly 45 varieties of sunflowers and a dazzling array of dahlias, zinnias, cosmos, and a field of barley. The fields are planted in stages so that all of the flowers can be enjoyed throughout the season, just in different locations around the fields. There will always be between 5 and 8 acres of flowers in full bloom throughout the season.
In addition to the flowers themselves, capture lasting memories of the day at a variety of on-site photo opportunities, including three vintage bicycles, a 1950s Morris convertible, a horse carriage, three swing sets, vintage tractors and much more.
