Get ready for Raleigh’s best photo op…in July. Five acres of sunflowers were just planted at Dix Park.
Last year was the first year for the sunflower fields to be in Dix Park. In past years, they were at Neuse River Greenway Trail.
In July, you’ll find them off Hunt Drive, next to the soccer fields.
On July 13th, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., celebrate the sunflower fields and more at Destination SunFest at Dix Park! There will also be free ferris wheel rides, free hayrides, live music, fireworks and more.
Enjoy some pictures from last year, including this beautiful picture that a Raleigh mom gave us permission to use.
The sunflowers are more than a great photo op. The sunflowers at Dix Park will also be harvested and used to contribute to the City’s biodiesel supply.
Parking: From Western Boulevard, turn onto Hunt Drive and enter Dorothea Dix Park. At the stop sign, turn right onto Umstead Drive. Follow the signs to parking. The event will be held in Flowers Field. Please note that there are no permanent restroom facilities, just port-a-johns.
