Siouxland Sunflower Festival

**This post now updated to reflect 2020 information**
Scarecrow Farm in Lawton, Iowa is hosting their annual Sunflower Festival this September! Here's the scoop on how Siouxland area families and visitors can enjoy this fun event:

When is Sunflower Days?

Sunflower Days 2020 will be every weekend in September, beginning Sept 12th (subject to change based on weather)!


Where is Sunflower Festival?

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. 
  • Live music and entertainment 
  • Morning yoga in the sunflower field
  • Pony rides
  • Kid-powered tractor pull
  • New giant slides for 2020
  • All of Scarecrow Farm's fun permanent attractions including a giant corn box, bounce pillow, playground, pirate ship, trike track, and more.
  • Food and drink for sale, including turkey legs, root beer floats, chocolate chip cookies, and kettle corn
  • Farm Market open to buy jams, jellies, honey, squash, and other locally produced goodies to take home with you


How to get tickets to Sunflower Festival at Scarecrow Farm

Ticket prices for Sunflower Days 2020 are not yet announced. In 2019, tickets  to Sunflower Festival at Scarecrow Farm were $11.95 (plus tax) for each person 3+ and toddlers and babies who are 2 or younger were free. I would anticipate a similar price range for 2020, and will update when prices are announced.
You can buy tickets to Sunflower Festival at the door, but if you'd prefer to buy ahead of time, you can buy tickets on the Scarecrow Farm website soon!

Siouxland Coronavirus Cancellations--UPDATED JULY 2020

In spring 2020 we saw over 20,000 cases of COVID-19 in Iowa, more than 15,000 in Nebraska, and more than 5000 cases in South Dakota, many of those right here in Siouxland.  For medical information on COVID-19, please visit the CDC's coronavirus page or Mayo Clinic coronavirus page   Wow, a lot has changed since I first posted this!

I will try to keep it up to date, so check back for updates, but I do not run any of these organizations, and I encourage you to seek out their individual websites and social media to confirm c
