Chilliwack Sunflower Festival

This by far is the most extravagant of the group. You’ll want to plan to spend a few hours here, if not all day. They’ve set up the space so that each field leads you from one to the next and the next. One minute you are swinging in the sunflowers, then over to the dahlias sitting on a peddle bike, strolling through the giants gazing at their size, playing corn hole, grabbing a food truck bite to eat and then back into the field for everything else!

Located right off of Highway 1, you can easily find the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival. When walking onto the property you’ll likely have your breath taken away. Sunflowers on sunflowers on sunflower, right next to the most dahlias you’ll ever see. If you want flowers, this is the spot! Not to mention their mountain view backdrop is beyond stunning.

Cost: $7.00 – $15.00 (prices vary for age and weekend/weekday pricing)

There’s plenty more than just sunflowers at Taves Farms. Their Sunflower Patch is just one of many different ways you can spend your time at Taves Farms. If you are coming for a visit for the sunflowers you may also want to take advantage of their upick apples, upick goji berries and upick strawberries (depending on what is still in season).

They are also a popular destination for families with their Farmville petting area and play structures for the kids. You’ll find a large bouncy pillow, pedal karts, swing sets and more!
