The only way to absolutely guarantee tickets to the Kalbar Sunflower Festival is to book accommodation now

Attention petals: if you want to celebrate at the Kalbar Sunflower Festival in April, you MUST BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION NOW, or you may have nowhere to lay your flower-crown.


Owner Manager of Kalbar Sunflowers Jenny Jenner said with the huge wait list for tickets when they go live at the end of this month, the only way to absolutely guarantee tickets is to book accommodation now.


“All accommodation booked in the Scenic Rim region for the weekend of the Festival will have tickets available as a package deal. It’s the perfect way to enjoy our glorious region and guarantee tickets to the Festival,” said Jenny.


“There’s camping and glamping sites, house and farm stays, airbnbs, cottages, motels and hotels and estates all within a short drive to the Festival, and we will have a courtesy bus operating for the three days.”


There is still plenty of room for camping and caravan sites at Kalbar Showground, Boonah Showground, Aratula Sports Ground and at Moogerah Dam. See the full listing of ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS here Accommodation — Kalbar Sunflowers


ABOUT THE KALBAR SUNFLOWER FESTIVAL – a celebration born of heartache

When life deals you heartache, grow Sunflowers and they will come. This is what the Jenners, a farming family in Kalbar in the Scenic Rim did in 2021. Three years later Jenny is preparing to plant more than a million sunflowers for the fourth annual Kalbar Sunflower Festival, now a three-day celebration of sunflowers, sunshine, happiness and big-heartedness from April 19 to 21.


In 2021, Lucerne farmers Jenny and Russell Jenner were struggling to keep their crops alive during one of the longest droughts in memory. Water had gotten so scarce they couldn’t grow their main crop, but after Russell brought a bunch of sunflowers home from the grocery store, they had a light bulb moment: sunflowers need very little water and they look spectacular, and from there the Festival grew.


Life has not gotten any easier for the Jenners. In late 2021 Russell was diagnosed with Stage 4 Oesophageal Cancer. His stoic nature saw him battle through and help create happiness at the 2022 and 2023 Festivals where over $115,000 was raised for cancer care. Unfortunately, Russell lost his battle a few months later in July 2023.


2024 is the first Festival without Russell, and Jenny is determined to continue farming and creating a joyful experience for visitors, dedicated to her very own Sunflower Man – Russell – and aiming to raise $100,000 for The Mater Cancer Care Centre at Springfield.


The 2024 Kalbar Sunflower Festival will feature sunrise yoga and sound healing in the sunflowers, adults and children’s sunflower art classes, unique dining experience with long lunches and a dinner event, photography mini sessions, flower crown masterclasses and a range of other special events, workshops and experiences and even helicopter rides above the sunflower paddocks.  Or just  wander through the sunflower fields and enjoy the mountain views.
