Blossoming Creativity: Celebrating the 4th Annual

Wisconsin Arts and Peony Festival

Where Art Meets Nature in Full Bloom

Mark Your Calendars!

June 7 - 9, 2024

Welcome to the Wisconsin Arts and Peony Festival, where three days of festivities await! Explore Ovans Peony Farm, the largest stem cut peony farm in Wisconsin, with daily tours showcasing the breathtaking beauty of peonies and your chance to view (and smell) a hundred different varieties of peonies and thousands of blooms.

This year, Ovans Peony Farm has experienced some unexpected challenges, including a hailstorm that damaged some of their peonies. The plants are growing back healthy and strong, but blooms in the field will be less than normal. While this means you won’t be able to purchase stem cuts, peony plants and seedlings will still be available.

Immerse yourself in a vibrant blend of art and nature as you wander through the Art Market on Saturday, June 8th, indulge in a delightful Brunch and Blossoms Stroll on Friday and Saturday, and enjoy live music and delectable treats from food trucks. From community portrait painting to art and sewing exhibits, storytelling, peony-themed art and sewing classes, and yarn bombing, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at this enchanting celebration of peonies and the arts.

Join us for a weekend filled with creativity, inspiration, and unforgettable experiences.
