Celebrate the arrival of summer during the annual Homer Peony Celebration in Homer, AK.  Homer’s unique climate provides the perfect environment for peonies all summer long! Come celebrate the start of the season in “The City Of Peonies;” July 1st through July 30th, 2024.

Homer is known as “The City Of Peonies” for a very good reason. The colorful blossoms bloom here from late June through August and sometimes even up into September. Further, our extended summer days, fertile soil, and wealth of glacier-fed breezes help to make them even more colorful and fragrant.

Peonies are an extremely popular flower, worldwide. Their lush, soft blooms, delicate petals, and enchanting fragrance are the perfect embodiment of romance and femininity. No wonder they are so coveted as wedding flowers!

As Alaskan peonies mature in July, a time when they are unavailable anywhere else, they see great demand. Consequently, Homer is home to 25 flourishing peony farms and the annual Homer Peony Celebration!
