Cedar Point’s Frontier Festival is an annual celebration of hope, health and harvest, inspired by a partnership with Prayers From Maria, a local organization whose mission is to raise awareness and money to fund research to end childhood cancer. Its symbol of hope, the sunflower, blooming annually at Maria’s Field of Hope in Avon, Ohio, and at Maria’s Field of Hope at Cedar Point (located next to Express Hotel in Sandusky), is at the heart of the festival.
