With heavy hearts, the Sunflower Festival committee has decided to cancel the Sunflower Festival 2020. This means that ALL EVENTS are cancelled associated with the Sunflower Festival. The cancellation is in the best interest of our participants, volunteers, and community. With concerns of Covid-19, the committee decided to be proactive early and follow CDC guidelines of not hosting large gatherings. It was a very tough decision as we love having the event for our community.

We look forward to Sunflower Festival 2021 and plan on making it the BEST YET!

Thank you for your understanding!
