2024 Fall Daylily Festival

This is our 29th fall daylily festival! The location is in Camp Hill, near Harrisburg PA. Official events are scheduled noon to noon, October 26-27, 2024. Many attendees arrive early on Friday and enjoy the informal preview activities Friday evening and Saturday morning. On Saturday morning, Jim Murphy hosts a chat room, and we have other fun activities. We have many exciting speakers including Rhonda Veroeven, Bobby Scott, Jamie Gossard, Angela Ridder, and Charlie Gomer. Peter Donato will show the daylilies of the future. 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 2024 is $110; $60 for first time attendees and $60 for youth members.

(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. Please let us know what you are donating, and forward your questions to:
