Being flower growers at heart only made sense to extend the tulip festival concept to another beauty, the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival 2019. Where the tulip symbolizes the beginning of spring and the end of winter, the Sunflower is a strong symbol of summer.
For the first annual Sunflower festival the owners decided to go all out and plant 17 different varieties to enjoy. There will be over 3 acres planted in the giant Mammoth sunflower that can reach heights of 12 feet and taller. They will also have 1.5 acres planted in a cut flower orange variety which will reach heights between 5 and 6 feet. The fields are completed with an acre of show garden with 15 different varieties of different heights, colours and bloom sizes for guests to enjoy.
Arrive early and see how all the bloom face East and watch the sun rise, sleep in and enjoy lunch at the fields while the flowers look straight up to the sky or visit us in the evening as the flowers face west and say good night as the sun sets. An amazing flower that follows the sun throughout the day.
Enjoy a cool drink or ice cream from the covered area. Have a meal at one of the food trucks on weekends, swing among the sunflowers on one of 3 swing sets spread out around the fields, take that perfect selfie in front of a working windmill or on the famous “tulip bike”. Enjoy a U-Pick area where you can choose the perfect sunflower (one colour only) for your home bouquet.
Shop in the store for your Canadian grown spring bulbs, Tulips and Daffodils grown right there on the fields. Pick up some fresh cut flowers including a selection of summer flowers from a partner business, Onos Greenhouses.
Chilliwack Sunflower Festival 2019 is brought to you by the creators of Tulips of the Valley.
