Here’s a list of several sunflower fields and sunflower festivals around Richmond, Virginia where you can get out and enjoy the bright blooms during the summer and early autumn of 2024.

Unfortunately sunflowers have an extremely short bloom duration making its tricky to catch when the flowers are in peak bloom. The exact dates for peak bloom can vary with the weather too, so be sure to check with the farm before venturing out!

SUNFLOWERS, Zinnias, Cosmos – July 5-7. For 2024, we have our most ambitious planting yet with multiple patches of sunflowers flanked by beautiful white buckwheat, which will make for some amazing photo opportunities.
