Don’t miss this! Two amazing sunflower festivals in the Lower Mainland on until September 15
There’s something otherworldly about sunflowers, the tall and beautiful flowers that can grow to heights that tower over our heads. Aside from their undeniable beauty, they also make the perfect companion for your next profile picture!
Last year, the Lower Mainland hosted its first-ever Sunflower Festival in Chilliwack from the owners of the massively popular Tulip Festival.
This year, there is not only one but two sunflower festivals to choose from!
The Chilliwack Sunflower Festival is running again for an amazing afternoon in the country, just an hour+ drive away from Downtown Vancouver. Not to be outdone, there is also a new, simultaneous sunflower festival happening in Richmond, still spectacular but a little closer to the city.

The Chilliwack Sunflower Festival has all sorts of fun things to do, including numerous photo ops and props, food trucks, train rides, a field of Dahlias, a special show garden, and of course, gorgeous sunflowers as far as the eye can see. It’s a fabulous farm experience—and great for all ages!
For their second annual Sunflower festival, the organizers planted 35 different varieties of sunflowers for you to enjoy. That means there are over 6 acres of towering sunflowers for you to explore. Perfect for finding a secluded area for your next Instagram photoshoot.
