Sunflower Festival is held at Scarecrow Farm in Lawton, Iowa, about 10 minutes past the Sioux City Menards on Highway 20.

What can you do at Sunflower Festival?

At Sunflower Festival at Scarecrow Farm, there will be a wide variety of fun, including
  • Lots of sunflowers! The center circle of Scarecrow Farm where pumpkins ready to buy are placed during pumpkin season has been taken over as a sunflower field, plus there are several more acres of sunflowers beyond that! Besides enjoying the view and taking photos, you can also buy sunflowers to take home with you. Each ticket includes one free sunflower. 
  • Live music and entertainment 
  • Morning yoga in the sunflower field
  • Pony rides
  • Kid-powered tractor pull
  • New Kakashi Warrior ninja course for kids
  • All of Scarecrow Farm's fun permanent attractions including a giant corn box, bounce pillow, playground, pirate ship, trike track, and more.
