Sunflower Trail Festival Returns to Ark-La-Tex in June
One of my favorite things to do in the middle of June and July is scrolling through Facebook and seeing all the wonderful photos people are posting from the Sunflower fields in Gilliam, Louisiana. Last year we weren't able to celebrate and all get together with food trucks and fun for kids of all ages, well because, you know, the whole COVID-19 thing kind of put a damper on everything.
This year, get ready, we won't be missing the Sunflower Trail & Festival on June 19, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will be fun for the whole family You can enjoy all the beautiful sunflowers along Highway 3049 just north of Shreveport. The best part is that is free for all!
For over 22 years now this celebration has provided art and entertainment for all ages. If you love events like Red River Revel you have to check out the handmade items for sale by heritage crafters and artists. Your Instagram account is about to step its game up, think of all the photos you can take in this cute quaint town surrounded by sunflowers.
If you have kids they will most likely stay entertained by the hands-on arts and crafts activities for children. A lot of people love supporting the small-town economy by grabbing lunch at nearby businesses including Main Street Restaurant, James Country Store, Rosie’s Grill in Gilliam, as well as and D&I General Store.
The festival will be going down at the Crossroads Museum in Gilliam, which is right off of Highway 3049 which some locals call Dixie/Shreveport Road. The address of the Crossroads Museum is 12797 Main Street (LA-3049) in Gilliam. The Red River Crossroads Historical Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit is the proud presenter of the 22nd Annual Sunflower Trail and Festival.
