Eleanor's Events Sunflowers - Scranton, Kansas August 22, 2020
In 2020, there are more changes to these sunflower fields and the name has changed to Eleanor's Events ("Sunflower Festival" is no longer part of the name). This year there is no admission charge, though a donation box is available. This public sunflower location near Scranton, Kansas, began several years ago as a public service from the Lyndon Leaders 4H Club. had become Eleanor's Sunflower Festival.
The first couple of years they were afraid of getting too big a response from the public and at their request we held off promoting their sunflower fields until 2018. That year they had 20 acres of black oil sunflowers and the sunflowers reached full bloom about August 16, 2018.
In 2020, the first blooms appeared and the field opened to the public on August 22. The sunflowers are expected to bloom into early September. You can track the status of the sunflowers at the Eleanor's Events Sunflower Facebook page.
The fields are now about a mile northwest of where they were the first few years and are now just a little west of US-75. There is a truck with a sunflower sign on the side at the main highway.
No restrooms are available.
