Sunflower Days

July 23-31, 2016

Sunflower Days at the Pope Farm Conservancy has become a beautiful annual event for thousands of people. Visitors from near and far come to see this visual phenomenon...a 9-acre sunflower field with over a half million sunflowers in bloom! It is truly a magical experience.

Sunflower Days is a free event hosted by the Friends of Pope Farm Conservancy. Our Goodwill Ambassadors will be present in the evenings and on weekends to greet you and answer any questions you may have about the sunflowers and the Conservancy. Be sure to stop by and visit the FOPFC booth - we will be selling bottles of water, along with other FOPFC merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs, decorative tiles, greeting cards, and more! We will have membership forms on hand, as well, if you're interested in becoming a member or supporting our mission. We look forward to sharing this experience with you!
