Dinner in the Blooms Sunflower Experience

Boasting “the most beautiful sunflower field in Kentucky and the Ohio Valley,” Trunnell’s Farm Market is pulling all the stops this year with its fourth annual Dinner in the Blooms Sunflower Experience. Running from 5-10 p.m. this Saturday, you can kick off your autumn season the right way with a gorgeous farm-t0-table dinner amongst the sunflowers. And this year’s event is better than ever. Trunnell’s has planted more than 65 varieties of sunflowers in every color imaginable for you to enjoy! Take a vintage, tractor-pulled wagon ride to the entrance of the sunflower trails, where you can explore thousands of blooms up close before treating yourself to a drink from the farm bar. This one-of-a-kind dinner experience will include a delicious meal served at a long farm-style table in the middle of the sunflower field. A dessert bar will follow dinner, and live music will be played throughout the entire evening. General admission is $69 per person and VIP tickets are $99 each. Get your tickets here!
