About the Festival

Harrison Sunflower Festival

Formerly the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival

The Harrison Sunflower Festival is an ode to one of the best seasons of the year—summer! The fun begins in August and runs into early-mid September, with acres of beautiful blooming Sunflowers, Dahlias, Cosmos & Zinnias!

What’s On at the Festival?

This year, the festival returns to its full glory at our new location in beautiful Agassiz, BC (we are returning to where it all began in 2006).  We are eager to welcome guests of all ages for an unforgettable adventure under a beautiful summer sky, surrounded by breathtaking mountain vistas.

Running from August 23 until September 17, 2023, the Harrison Sunflower Festival’s winding pathways throughout the fields, bursting with nearly 45 varieties of sunflowers and a dazzling array of dahlias, zinnias, cosmos, and a field of barley. The fields are planted in stages so that all of the flowers can be enjoyed throughout the season, just in different locations around the fields. There will always be between 5 and 8 acres of flowers in full bloom throughout the season.

In addition to the flowers themselves, capture lasting memories of the day at a variety of on-site photo opportunities, including three vintage bicycles, a 1950s Morris convertible, a horse carriage, three swing sets, vintage tractors and much more. 

This year also sees the return of “U-pick sunflowers”, offering five varieties, as well as a field-side store with fresh-cut sunflowers, sunflower seeds and bulbs (tulips and daffodils) for planting, souvenirs, ice cream, snacks, cold drinks, local honey and local garlic.
