It’s harvest time in the Pacific Northwest. One crop that brings universal admiration for its lofty stalks and full faced color is the sunflower. Portland sunflower festivals and fields are opening in July, August and September, inviting our community to come take in this bloom while it lasts.
Portland has many incredible you-pick farms. Two of these farms, located just a short drive from your Portland neighborhood, are hosting sunflower festivals. Each has its own list of activities for your family to enjoy.
Before setting out to the farm, I recommend packing a lunch, a nice blanket and plenty of water. Once you’re done soaking in the sun with the flowers, you’ll find plenty of shady spots and picnic benches to sit down and enjoy your surroundings. These farms are beautiful and highlight the artistry of our local farming communities.
These sunflower blooms will only be here for a short time. There is a chance that you might arrive at the farm during the tail end of the festival to find a dismal field. Please check the farms’ social media for updates on the blooms.
