Sunflower Festival Opens Friday

 

Everything’s coming up sunflowers this summer in #Calhoun, Georgia! Brighten your spirits and table with a bucketful of the flowers that are recognized as a symbol of happiness.

Copper Creek Farm’s annual Sunflower Festival kicks-off this Friday, June 15 and continues on Fridays and Saturdays through July 7. The festival will also be open on July 4 & 5. Festival hours are 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Admission ranges from $12.85 to $16.83 (plus tax) depending on what activities you choose to include in your visit.

The festival provides guests a chance to experience various farm-themed activities. Bring the kids out for a barnyard adventure featuring duck and pig races, gem mining, an animated chicken show, and the ever-entertaining watermelon cannon! Guests can interact with the animals by petting the bunnies in “Bunnyville,” riding ponies, and milking the cows and goats in the barn. New this year, there is a kids zip line, mechanical bull, and observation honey bee barn!

The Copper Creek Grill will keep your crew fed with festival staples like burgers, hotdogs, pizza, and BBQ. And Country Cabin Sweets and Treats will be serving up homemade ice cream, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and other sugary goodness to cure your sweet tooth.

Of course, the luminous sunflower fields are the draw of the festival. For an additional $6 fee, patrons are welcome to pick and take home a bucket of the farm’s bright blooms. Stroll through the patches and admire the ten different color varieties of sunflowers grown at Copper Creek. The farm will offer hay rides through the fields allowing guests to photograph the flowers and view the entire property. The quaint farm provides a beautiful backdrop for photos and perfect selfie spots!

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Copper Creek Farms prides itself on being a place for families to make memories for years to come. The farm is also open in the fall for a pumpkin fest & corn maze and hosts field trips teaching kids the importance of agriculture in our society. Copper Creek Farm is located at 1514 Reeves Station Rd. Calhoun, Georgia.
