The end of summer brings a lot of exciting things like cooler temperatures, the start of a new school year, and apple-picking season. And don’t forget about the sunflowers! These big yellow blossoms only last for a week or two, so time is limited if you want to see them at their peak – and maybe even take a few home with you. There’s a little farm in eastern Nebraska that’s the perfect place to celebrate sunflower season.

The Sunflower Festival takes place in late August-early September; the exact dates are determined by whenever the sunflowers decide to bloom. There are other festivals all throughout the summer celebrating other crops grown on the farm, as well as Farm-to-Table meals and lots of other fun events. Follow Pam Nelson Produce on Facebook to keep up with future events and visit the Nelson Produce Farm website for information on hours, admission costs, and more.

After you spend the day with the sunflowers, visit the nearby Quasar Drive-In Movie Theater for an evening movie!
