The Festival of Spring
Pick your own spring flowers!
Nokesville farm - 11008 Kettle Run Rd., Nokesville, VA 20181
Visit the 2019 Field Reports page for updates.
Our Festival of Spring is a unique, magical event that's fun for the whole family. We plant more than eight acres of spring flowers for one of the most spectacular pick-your-own events in North America. In fact, it's now one of the largest pick-your-own flower events in the world!
More than a million tulips and daffodils in bloom! Exact timing is very hard to predict as these flowers bloom according to the spring weather patterns and Mother Nature is in charge of that. Checking the field reports page or our facebook page is strongly advised before planning a visit. Our blooming season lasts about 21-30 days on average (depending on the weather) and the most flowers are in bloom for about 10 days in the middle of the season.
Festival of spring admission for 2019 is $8 weekdays and $10 weekends with a pre-purchased ticket. Tickets are $2 more at the gate (online ticket sales will be available through a link here soon).
We offer unlimited re-entry Passports for $15 which are good for visits any day (even weekends) of the spring season (our spring season usually lasts 25-30 days). Purchase a passport if you think you'll visit at least twice during the spring season. Visitors who come back more than once are always amazed at how much the fields have changed since their last visit. Passports are limited and when they sell out, that's it for the season.
Children under 2 are free.
Flower prices are: daffodils 2 for $1, tulips $1 per stem. Some flowers will come up with a bulb when picking. If you'd like to keep the bulb, the bulb is $1 extra. You'll have the option to keep the bulb when bunching your flowers before checkout. Learn how we pick flowers here.
Activities included in admission: three bounce features, playhouse area, cornhole games, short film cinema in the barn, corn sandbox, more than 100 pairs of authentic dutch wooden shoes to "klomp" around in and a picnic area. We also usually have vendors and live music on the weekends.
Activities with an additional $2 (each/per person) fee: cow train and wagon rides (when available). Children under 2 are free.
We have a wonderful partially shaded picnic area with lots of picnic tables. Pack a picnic and spend the day amongst a million blooming flowers! Picnic tables tend to fill up quickly on the weekends so we recommend bringing a blanket to picnic on in case the tables are all full.
Bring your camera as the photo opportunities are out of this world!
