If you haven’t had a chance to stop by one of the three sunflower festivals running this year — Chilliwack Sunflower Festival, Maan Farms Sunflower Festival and Richmond Sunflower Festival — don’t worry you still have some time up your sleeve. Both the Richmond and Chilliwack festivals are on until Sep. 15, while the Maan Farms festival ends a little sooner on Sep. 9.

At Chilliwack’s second annual Sunflower festival there are 35 different sunflower varieties to enjoy and six acres of giant Mammoth sunflowers, that can reach heights of more than 12 feet, to walk through. This year, there’s also a three-acre field of 54 varieties of Dahlias. The festival is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends — it also has sunrise openings on select days.

In Richmond, visitors can enjoy more than 20 different types of sunflowers and dahlias spread throughout eight acres of land at Richmond Country Farms from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

As well as a chance to frolic in the sunflower fields — some reaching six feet high — at Maan Farm’s first ever sunflower festival, visitors can also sip wine, pick strawberries and play with goats. The festival is open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.

All three fields have an incredible backdrops and Instagram worthy photo opportunities, so we can understand why ‘every man and his dog’ has ventured out to take the perfect picture.
