Over the years, Wildflower! has grown to become one of the most recognized and anticipated musical events in North Texas. What began as a small springtime community event to celebrate the wildflowers planted throughout the city quickly “blossomed” after only the second year when national headlining entertainers were added.  Today the festival boasts six performance stages, four outdoor and two inside the Eisemann Center, where more than 80 musical acts are showcased.

This year’s celebration will continue its sterling reputation and host a series of must-see events for everyone including live performances by national, regional and local bands, the Singer Songwriter contest, the family friendly WF! Kids, the WF! Eats, the WF! Marketplace and Performers Row featuring strolling entertainers, buskers and acrobats. Wildflower! will also feature a Battle of the Bands contest, the Budding Talent Competition, and the Art Guitar Auction.
