Grab your sundresses and picnic blankets (or your rain boots and umbrellas, depending on the weather) and get ready for the 45th annual Daffodil Festival at United Methodist Church in Bigelow, Arkansas!

     A continuation of the church’s tradition of planting and selling daffodils, the festival draws in visitors and vendors from across the US and beyond.  Visitors are free to walk through the field of flowers and pick from designated areas. Admission and parking are free, but donations are highly encouraged to support backpack and food drives for underprivileged schools in the area, as well as to keep a little piece of Arkansas history alive. The festival is also host to a wide variety of vendors and artists.

     The festival is expected to run through this week, but if you aren’t able to make it this year, the 46th Daffodil Festival will be at the beginning of March next year.
