Join us for a day full of creativity, culture, and community!
.…my father and I were involved in a traumatic motorcycle accident, shaking us to the core and changing the trajectory of our lives forever.
The physical wounds have long since scarred over, but the emotional wounds still have a ways to go.
The anniversary of our accident was once a day of distraction for our family.
Anything to keep the demons at bay. Now, however, we project our energies a bit differently.
Several years ago, my family and I decided to fill the day with music, love, and light. We charge and channel our present energies to radiate towards the future.
I truly believe the role of the artist is to evoke emotion and catalyze social change. We are made to create. Wildflower Festival is a space for artists and art lovers to gather, share, appreciate, and enjoy artwork.
At the moment, Wildflower Festival is more akin a church homecoming than an actual music festival, but we have big dreams!
If you are an artist interested in participating, please feel free to contact us. Space well be provided display artwork and share poetry. Musicians are scheduled but we are always looking for new talent so please feel free to reach out.
Regardless of your artistic passions, we hope you join us for a day of creativity, culture, and community. Bring a picnic, some cold drinks, and an open soul, heart, and mind. We hope to see you the first Saturday in June!
