This week I’m sharing a visit to the Holt Family Farm Sunflower Festival..
The Sunflower Festival is held in Rutledge Georgia. Which is about 40 miles east of Atlanta.. and only minutes from my home. This is an annual event and is always on the 4th of July weekend.
It has become a very popular festival in Georgia.
Located on a 15-acre glorious sunflower farm, the festival features fields of sunflowers that you can cut.. prices start at $5.00 a bundle. There are huge shade covered Vendor Tents, live music, an antique tractor parade, a kids' play area, and delicious summer time food.
The Ronay Guide .. which is a guide to all southern festivals.. calls the Sunflower Festival "The most beautiful festival setting ever!” I can see why!
Acres & Acres of beauty..
Sunflowers in all sizes…
Look at this amazing sunflower stalk.. I never knew they had so many sprout off of one stem.
Busy lil Bees doing their jobs…
The sunflowers aren’t the only beauty here.. Love this rusty tin roof shack.
The most beautiful Zinnias you’ve ever seen.. in all colors.
Butterflies… everywhere.. amazing beauty.
I’ll be planting some of these Zinnia beauties next year.. The butterflies loved them.
I hope you enjoyed our trip to the Sunflower Festival… If you’re in the area next year, it’s a festival well worth attending. Make sure you bring your camera.. and a wagon to haul all the sunflowers you’ll be picking to take home!
