Greetings 2018 Festival Guests!

On behalf of the Wildflower Festival Board of Directors, I would like to welcome each of you to this year’s Festival – our 32nd! We’ll kick off our season in June, host a 10-day Festival from July 6-15, and continue events through August. We’ve created a season with over 200 offerings including hikes and walks for all speeds and stamina, photography and art workshops, birding and butterfly outings, geology and geobotany, garden tours, cooking classes, and backcountry jeep tours.

 

Change is in the air for 2018! Our Festival Headquarters will be in a new location – 716 Elk Avenue at the Old Historic Train Depot! Also look for our new Membership Appreciation Party (in lieu of the Wildflower Happy Hour) during the Festival week.  And, of course, we’ll offer new events for you to enjoy. We hope you’ll join us and help make the 2018 Festival our most successful yet, and help us carry out our mission, advocating for the preservation and appreciation of wildflowers.
