Eleanor's Events Sunflowers - Scranton, Kansas August 22, 2020
Since 2020 these sunflower fields are named Eleanor's Events ("Sunflower Festival" is no longer part of the name). 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 2021 field opened to the public from Friday August 27 through September 5. 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 rest rooms are available.
