Flowerstock 2017


DATE: October 9-10, 2017

START TIME: 9:00 AM

LOCATION: Hope Flower Farm | Waterford, Virginia

Last year we welcomed dozens of designers and flower lover's from near and far to Hope Flower Farm for the first annual Flowerstock. This year we are thrilled to open our doors again to professionals and members of the community for two days of demonstrations and talks by renowned floral designers. Flowerstock will feature a curated group of local shops chosen with you in mind, as well as flower play, live music, food trucks, barn dancing, campfires and glamping. We are so excited for you to participate in what is sure to be a memorable and eventful two days!

GLAMPING TENTS

Flowerstock attendees have the choice to stay in a nearby hotel/B&B or stay on the farm in a European-inspired canvas shelter provided by Solid Ground Shelters.  If you choose to stay in a tent, you have two options: 

1. Flowerstock Deluxe Bed Tent package accommodates 2 in queen or twin beds. This option includes genuine memory foam mattress with bed linens, pillow, comforter, end table, mat, bistro table with two chairs, and battery operated light.

 2. Flowerstock Premium 4 Cot Tent accommodates 4. This option includes 4 camping cots, 4 pillows, 4 sleeping bags for you to keep upon your departure, a battery operated tent light, end table and rug.

Please note: There will be portable toilet/sink facilities. Remember, this is camping! Come clean and shiny and leave dirty, but inspired. Weather can be a bit unpredictable, which will add to the adventure. We highly discourage having food in the tents as it might invite unwanted visitors to your tent (think raccoons & groundhogs)!
