This is our 24th daylily fall festival! The location is in Camp Hill, near Harrisburg PA. Official events are scheduled noon to noon, October 20-21, 2018. Many attendees arrive early on Friday and enjoy the informal preview activities Friday evening and Saturday morning. Saturday morning we also hold clinics, Jim Murphy hosts a chat room, and we have other fun activities. We have many exciting speakers who will soon be announced. Peter Donato will show the daylilies of the future. Last year we held 3 simultaneous workshops on Saturday that were very popular. We are expanding on the workshop concept this year and we will have a 40 minute workshop on Saturday. Participants can choose the two topics of most interest to them from the three diverse subjects offered.
New for this year is a reduced rate for first time attendees! And we have a great daylily plant to give each new attendee also. We want more participation form within Region 3 and we love everyone who travels to Lilyhemmer from other AHS Regions. Lilyhemmer is fun for every daylily enthusiast who is able to attend.
Registration fee for 2018 is $89 (USD) and $45 for first time attendees and youth members.

Live Auction Donations
(Saturday night, after dinner) AHS members and hybridizers have generously supported our auction and we again need your support. Potted plants are preferred, bare root plants don't work for everyone in October in our climate, but certificates for spring shipment are also welcomed. Lilyhemmer attendees are encouraged to pot up a great plant and bring it for the auction. People may also send plants to Stuart Kendig before Labor Day and we will pot the plant(s) for auction. Please let us know what you are donating, and forward your questions to:
