Louisiana SunflowersThe 20th annual Sunflower Trail and Festival will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 16, 2018, at Red River Crossroads Museum, 12797 Main Street, Gilliam, Lousiana.

The festival will feature a scenic sunflower trail, sunflower picking, arts and crafts, live entertainment, art exhibits, children’s activities, a sunflower photography contest, treasure hunt, and more.

To drive the Sunflower Trail, turn right at Old Dixie Gin and Sentell Road and drive the loop around the levee. Sentell Road circles back to Highway 3049 at Cornerstone Baptist Church, just north of Dixie. This scenic drive features several sunflower varieties and wildflower fields. Sunflowers along the trail are expected to be in full bloom. The sunflowers bloom in mid-June, and last for a month.

“Festivalgoers love the small town family atmosphere, the simplicity of driving the country roads and walking through the sunflowers,” said Karen Logan, event organizer for Sunflower Trail and Festival.

Food and refreshment vendors will be available at the festival, and lunch is available for purchase at Main Street Restaurant and Adger’s Store, as well as The Wild Petunia and D&I General Store in nearby Belcher.

Live music will be performed in downtown Gilliam behind the library on Main Street. The bands headlining this year’s festival are AJ and Two Tone Blues, along with The Offerings.

The Sunflower Trail and Festival is a presentation of the Red River Crossroads Historical Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 1994.
