“We started in 2018 on our family farm in Lisbon Maryland. Our goal is to be a positive spot in your day by providing fields of gorgeous sunflowers to stroll around. We wanted to bring an activity to the area that is great for all ages while being outside in nature. During our first two years we have worked with a variety of organizations and local charities, giving back to our community. Along with supporting our local communities FFA, Churches, and food bank, we have also hosted themed nights. These have included Dog night and hosting the local volunteer Fire Company. We have had a variety of kid friendly activities such as a corn pit and fun photo cutouts.
Our goal is to be a positive spot in your day! We hope to put a smile on your face as you immerse yourself in nature with our beautiful fields of Sunflowers!
Includes admission to a 13-acres of beautiful sunflowers, three blooms free to cut, live music from local artists, a hayride, new fun kid activities (slides, corn pits and more), food trucks, vendors, and much more.
Each weekend at Maple Lawn we will have live music, food trucks, and craft vendors. There are two different food trucks each day and 15 craft vendors each weekend.”

The Sunflower Gardens in Westminster are a small, flower loving set up, who love to welcome guests to admire their sunflower crop.
“We are a quaint little farm to get some flowers and take a few selfies! We aren’t the big huge field of sunflowers, we are a cutting garden to get bouquets. Some people see our pictures posted and think the garden looks like that all the time, our flowers come and go but we try and keep it fresh. Pick Your Own Flower Farm, late August will be peak for sunflowers. We started 23 years ago as a small garden selling only sunflowers. Fast forward to 2021 and a large bouquet cost 15 dollars. We have added 10 different types of wild flowers.”
Valley View Acres
4005 Valley View Rd, Middletown, MD 21769
What could be lovelier than a sunflower festival? Get on down to Valley View Acres in Middletown during sunflower season with all the family for a fabulous day out.
“Valley View Acres was originally Haines Brothers Farm founded in 1990 as a dairy farm. Later the cows were sold and the farm was converted solely to a crop farm. Over the years the farm has seen many changes including the addition of a bagged ice business: Valley View Ice, which services many local businesses and members of the community.
Valley View Acres started as a fun idea tossed around in a casual conversation until one day it became a reality. In 2018, we planted a field of sunflowers as a “trial run.” The response from the community was very encouraging. And so the concept of a multiple weekend Sunflower Festival was born.
We’re passionate about agriculture and sharing it with everyone who wants to come enjoy some good ole fashioned fun. We hope our festivals become an annual tradition for all those who attend.”
