Please note: As recommended by BC’s provincial health officials, if you choose to participate in events or leisure activities outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing and frequent handwashing. If you are sick or are experiencing any symptoms, please stay home. 

Get your cameras ready because a stunning sunflower festival will be kicking off in Abbotsford this week.

From August 19 to September 13, 2020, Maan Farms will be hosting the Abbotsford Sunflower Festival.

The popular event will feature plenty of opportunities to capture Instagram-worthy shots, a premium U-pick sunflower field, special days where dogs are welcome, and access to Maan Farm’s Corn Maze and Barnyard adventure.

If you’re feeling hungry, Mama Maan’s Kitchen will be cooking up delicious farm-fresh dishes like butter chicken, chickpea bowls, samosas, or traditional fair food like hot dogs and fries.

New to the festival this year is Picnic in the Petals, allowing visitors to enjoy freshly cooked eats with a stunning view of the sunflower field. Picnic packages include free admission into the sunflower field, along with a taste of Maan Farms Estate Wine.

A number of health and safety precautions are being implemented by event organizers, who say they work with Fraser Health on a weekly basis.

This year, event capacity will be reduced to 30% of its regular amount. Inside the attraction, paths have been widened and will be one-way. Masks will also be required for anyone visiting the market. Additionally, tickets will be timed and entrance will be monitored regularly to avoid overcrowding.

Increased disinfecting and sanitizing is also being practiced.

Tickets for the Abbotsford Sunflower Festival can be purchased online. Prices range from $10 to $17 based on age and time of attendance or $12 to $22 at the door.
