Chilliwack Sunflower Festival by the creators of Tulips of the Valley

NOW CLOSED FOR THE SEASON

This past Summer we welcomed you to explore over 5 acres of sunflowers in 17 different varieties.  You got lost among the 3 acres of giant Mammoth sunflowers reaching up to 12 feet tall.  Enjoyed a leisurely stroll along one of our many paths through 1.5 acres of Suntastic Orange and snapped that perfect selfie in our 1 acre show garden displaying 15 different varieties of this gorgeous flower.  We can’t wait to open our gates again next August and sharing with you all of our new surprises.

Arrive early and see how all the bloom face East and watch the sun rise, sleep in and enjoy lunch at the fields while the flowers look straight up to the sky or visit us in the evening as the flowers face west and say good night as the sun sets.  An amazing flower that follows the sun throughout the day.

Enjoy a cool drink or ice cream from our covered area. Have a meal at one of our food trucks on weekends, swing among the sunflowers on one of our 3 swing sets spread out around the fields, take that perfect selfie in front of our working windmill or on the famous “tulip bike”.  Enjoy our U-Pick area where you can choose the perfect sunflower (one colour only) for your home bouquet.

Shop in our store for your Canadian grown spring bulbs, Tulips and Daffodils grown right here on our fields.  Pick up some fresh cut flowers including a selection of summer flowers from our partner business, Onos Greenhouses.
