UPDATE 9/21/2021: This is an update on our hotel. The Radisson was sold earlier this year and the change went through this week. It is now known as the Penn Harris Trademark Collection by Wyndham. Unfortunately, the reservation system is not working correctly and the Wyndham does not recognize our group.
It is supposed to be fixed by the end of this week (9/24 or 9/25). We recommend waiting to make reservations until after 9/25. In the meantime, for reservations call the Penn Harris direct at 717-763-7117. Tell them you have a group rate and not to transfer you to Wyndham reservations. The Penn Harris needs to make the reservation. Our rate is still $109.00.
This is our 26th fall daylily festival! The location is in Camp Hill, near Harrisburg PA. Official events are scheduled noon to noon, October 16-17, 2021. 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 including Heidi & Charles Douglas, Gary Ball, Phil Korth, Margo Reed, and others. Peter Donato will show the daylilies of the future. Stuart and Diane Kendig will present the 2021 LilyGame, which will confuse some and excite many. A wonderful buffet dinner is included in the registration fee and we have a huge plant raffle, silent auction, and great daylilies for auction.
We are excited this year to provide a reduced registration rate for first time attendees! And we have a great daylily plant to give each new attendee. We want more participation from 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 2021 is $89 (USD); $50 for first time attendees and $45 for youth members.
Online Registration Preferred. Click here to download the 2021 Registration Form
Reward for new attendees:
We want to encourage new attendees and we are offering a nice daylily plant, minimum value of $35, to each new attendee. And there are lots of other prizes.
Lilyhemmer attendees can win lots of prizes during the raffles and games we play. In addition, there is an opportunity to win $500 worth of daylilies. One attendee will be selected to win a $500 plant certificate donated by Michael Miller at the close of Lilyhemmer on Sunday.
Join us for 2021 Lilyhemmer, our 26th year!

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:
Camp Hill is adjacent to Harrisburg, west of the Susquehanna River.
Rooms are $109 plus tax, if reserved prior to September 24, 2021. Tell that you are with the Lilyhemmer Convention.
