Save the Date! Indiana Peony Festival Returns May 20-21

Following a successful inaugural event that drew more than 10,000 people in 2021, the Indiana Peony Festival returns to Seminary Park in Noblesville Saturday May 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year’s festival has expanded to include a VIPP (Very Important Peony Person) event, “Peonies in the Park” on Friday, May 20 from 7 – 9 p.m. as well as “Brunch and Blooms” during the day Saturday, May 21. More than 50 vendors are anticipated for this year’s event and, thanks to the City of Noblesville police, fire and public safety, dedicated parking lots and a shuttle to-and-from the downtown Noblesville event will improve attendee’s experience.

“Last year’s event was such a wonderful success, we were committed to bringing it back this spring bigger and better than ever,” said event chair Kelly McVey. “We are excited to add more sponsors as well as local restaurant and artist partners.” Tickets as well as details about events, sponsors and vendors can be found at indianapeonyfestival.com. The mission of the Indiana Peony Festival is to inspire Indiana residents to celebrate the state flower, to enhance Noblesville through peony beautification projects, and to promote Hamilton County as a desired visitor destination during May, when peonies are in bloom and Indianapolis 500 festivities occur.
