SPRINGFIELD, Mo - News Release: Farm Becomes Sea of Sunflowers During Annual Festival

Springfield, Missouri - If the idea of 30,000 sunflowers warms your heart, check out the 3rd Annual Sunflower Festival at Golden Grove Farms July 24-28.

An acre of the farm about 15 minutes northeast of Springfield will transform into a sea of ornamental sunflowers in 12 varieties thanks to summer sunshine and plentiful rain. The farm also will become a family playground with a variety of games; ice cream, snacks and soft drinks; artwork for sale; and props for photos. Photographers are welcome to bring clients for photo shoots.  

Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch or dinner and stay as long as they like. Live music is scheduled for 6:30-8:30 each evening and during the afternoon on Friday-Sunday. 

Vases are available for arranging on the spot, and guests are encouraged to bring a bucket with water to transport their flowers home.

Admission is $5 per adult and free for children under 16. Cut-your-own sunflowers are $1 each. Festival hours are 10 a.m.-8:30 p.m. each day and the address is at 4950 E. State Highway KK, Fair Grove.
