The glorious field of lupines goes into full bloom in June in Sugar Hill New Hampshire. And the Fields of Lupine Festival, now in its 26th year, is a magnificent experience. Every nature and flower lover must see the field of lupines, at least once.
In June, folks from far and near will flock to the Fields of Lupine Festival in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. They come to admire, photograph, and walk through this amazingly brilliant field of lupines – literally thousands of lupines. It’s a rolling sea of vibrant purples, pinks, blues and whites. Just follow the paths carved through the fields. Take time to read the inspirational messages on the wooden signs along the trail. As a bonus, lupines attract equally dazzling butterflies, creating a magnificent floral display against the majestic backdrop of the Franconia, Presidential, and Kinsman Mountain ranges. You are guaranteed awesome photo opportunities.
Early June is the peak of the lupine season. However, the BEST weekend to go is during the Lupine Celebration Festival – June 8 & 9. 10 am – 4 pm
Enjoy the open-air market (70+ artisans, crafters, and vendors), free concerts, workshops, historic museum tours. You’ll find parking behind the Meeting House. See full schedule of events here.
