Chilliwack Sunflower Festival 2021


The annual Chilliwack Sunflower Festival is back for another year. Guests are welcomed back to the fields for summer’s favourite photo op. The event officially opens Monday, July 26th and has plans to run until early September, provided that the weather cooperates.

I got a sneak peak a day earlier and when the fields were free. This year they have changed the layout and now have spacious isles to stroll through on their 60 acre farm. Walk amongst 42 varieties of sunflowers, 50 varieties of dahlias, and 8 varieties of gladiolas.

As per their website, “In order to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all guests, there will be limited hourly capacity, as well as hand-sanitizing stations positioned throughout the premises, and staff will frequently sanitize high-touch areas.”

For those planing to make a day of it, there is plenty to see and do. There is a playground with giant games and activities for the kids. The gift shop offers cold beverages, ice cream and snacks, on top of souvenirs and fresh-cut and potted sunflowers, sunflower seeds and bulbs (tulips, daffodils and hyacinths) for planting.

You can even have lunch on site with a local food truck parked and ready to serve. Expect one Monday to Friday and two on the weekends.

Continue scrolling through the photos below to help inspire your perfect sunflower moment, and to help pre-plan your photo shoot before you go. There are returning fan favourites like the old convertible, tractor, wooden clogs, and baby carriage. Plus more swings, bikes, and benches to avoid having to wait for a sit.
