Know Before You Go

Make the most out of your visit! Plan your visit to the Coshocton Sunflower Festival using the following tips on what to bring and what to see and do while you're here.

Priority Health & Safety Measures

We are very excited to safely open our festival and provide an outdoor experience for our community.  Our operations will be modified to provide a safe environment for our guests and staff.  Please read the details about our COVID-19 operations below.


Days & Times

Additional days and times may be added to allow more people to experience the sunflowers.  Our capacity is limited and these additional days will be added as necessary.  Time slot changes are not permitted.

Timed & Limited Ticketing

Tickets will be limited and offered in 30 minute arrival increments.  Please arrive at your chosen time to reduce large gatherings and lines. Tickets are only available online. There will be no ticket sales at the door.

Wagon Rides

We will limit the capacity of our wagons which take you to the field to allow for social distancing. Following the Ohio Department of Health Director's Order, we require guests to wear masks when riding the wagon ride. If you prefer to walk, we will have a marked pathway to the field.  The walk is roughly 1/4 of a mile.

Food Truck and Music Area

We will provide picnic tables for you.  When enjoying your food and drink, please sit at the tables with your group as gathering areas are not allowed with the Responsible Restart Ohio guidelines.


Group sizes should be limited to 10 or fewer while at the festival.



Guests are encouraged to wear masks when in close proximity to other guests and our staff.

Also, following the Ohio Department of Health Director's Order, we require guests to wear masks when riding the wagon ride.


We recommend bringing masks for the situations mentioned above.


Plan Ahead

Arrive On Time


Please arrive within 15 minutes of your reserved time slot. You may stay as long as you'd like after you arrive.

Prepare Ticket to Scan


When you arrive, please have your ticket barcode available for scanning. Tickets can either be printed or scanned from your confirmation email on your mobile device.


There are bees in our field but they are typically happily going about their pollinating business.  If you are allergic to bees please bring the necessary items to take care of yourself in case of a sting.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is admission?

Admission ranges between $7 and $18 for the day. The price varies by day of the season based on what is happening that day. Click here to see the full rate list. We also offer season passes which are great for flexibility or if you want to come multiple times.

Are pets allowed?

Yes, as long as your furry friend(s) is well-socialized and friendly to fellow canines and other humans. Pets must be leashed and owners are responsible for cleaning up.

Can I visit multiple days?

Yes you can! We're offering season passes. This is a great option for photographers or gives you flexibility with the weather.

What happens if it rains?

We hold the festival rain or shine. A little rain changes the look of the flowers and cools the August heat. Plan ahead and bring your rain gear. Tickets cannot be cancelled due to weather.

I'm a professional photographer, can I schedule photo shoots?

If you have clients we recommend our weekdays as they will be quieter than the festival days. Season passes are great for photographers who would like to bring multiple clients or who want flexibility with their days. You and your clients can purchase tickets on our ticketing page. There is no need to schedule an appointment with our office. Our field covers almost 5 acres and has multiple photo props and many different kinds of flowers. Finding the perfect spot shouldn't be an issue. Please plan to carry your gear to the field. Additional hard-to-move props are not recommended.

Am I required to wear a mask?

While wearing a mask is not required we certainly reccommend it. Let's look after each other and practice social distancing so we can keep getting life back to normal.

Will hand sanitizer be available?

While we will make our best attempt to provide hand washing stations it is not possible to provide them everywhere. Please plan to bring your own sanitizer to practice good hygiene.

How long should I plan to stay?

It's really up to you! If you want to explore the flowers, take lots of pics, try the food, and listen to music you could nearly stay all day. If you just have a few hours you can definitely get the experience. If you're not sure when you want to come try a season pass. You'll have the flexibility to come any time and for as long as you like!

How do I purchase a Season Pass?

First, go to our ticketing webpage (coming in June 2021). Then, under the "Tickets" section, choose any date and any time slot. These fields just have to be filled up to display all of the ticket and pass types.

Is the venue handicap accessible?

While we take every effort to ensure all guests can enjoy our sunflower field and festival, the event takes place in a farm field with potentially uneven or soft terrain. The terrain is mostly level but many places in the sunflower field are bare dirt. We offer either handicap parking at the field when available or golf cart rides to the field for those are physically unable to board the wagon or walk. A handicap accessible portable toilet is offered at the festival area.
