The Chilliwack Sunflower Festival, one of the Lower Mainland’s most prominent flower festivals, is making a return this July.

The beloved summer event announced on Monday that it would be returning to the Fraser Valley for its fourth consecutive year.

And while they adjusted to provide a smaller experience in 2020, organizers say they’re excited to bring the festival back in its “full glory.”

Chilliwack Sunflower Festival

The festival boasts more than three kilometres of flowered pathways throughout the field. Visitors can find three display gardens with 42 varieties of sunflowers, over 50 types of dahlias, eight varieties of gladiolas, and a large bed of wildflowers.

Organizers add that fields are planted in different stages, which allows visitors to enjoy all of the flowers throughout the season — and there will always be between five to eight acres of flowers in full bloom.

There will also be plenty of chances to grab an insta-worthy photo. Photo props are spread around the venue including a windmill, vintage bicycles, a 1950s Morris convertible, a horse carriage, swing sets, and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Other popular returning features include self-pick sunflowers, a field-side store with fresh and potted sunflowers, sunflower seeds and bulbs, and plenty of snacks and drinks available on-site.

In order to ensure a safe experience for guests, the festival will implement a limited hourly capacity. There will also be hand-sanitizing stations and cleaning of frequent high-touch areas.
