Get ready to soak up these last few weeks of sweet summer sunshine at one of our favourite local hidden gems—the Saanichton Sunflower Festival is now open!
This is one seasonal pastime that you’re not going to want to miss out on before it’s gone, as the flowers only bloom until September, depending on weather.
In its fourth year, the Saanichton Sunflower Festival has 23 different varieties expected to bloom over the course of the next 3-5 weeks.
The annual festival is nestled within the fields of the stunning Ocean View States, located on the Saanich Peninsula, and attendees are invited to walk through acres of beautiful sunflowers.
Tickets are available online, and are sold in 1.5 hour timeslots.
There are several photo-ops scattered throughout the fields, as well as a dedicated U-Pick field!
They will also offer farm fresh produce every day, such as strawberries and corn.
On weekends, there will be an Indian Street Food truck on-site offering samosas, pakoras, and more—plus a Beer Garden! So make sure you come hungry and thirsty.
Additionally, August 26th, they’ll also have a 90s sitcom trivia night at the farm and tickets will be available online.
Open now, the sunny display of flowers greets you at the walk’s entrance, and the whole experience is a proverbial Instagram playground—for everything from those perfect photo ops to a floral enthusiast’s dream.
Also known for their corn maze in the fall months, they offer the popular Sunflower Festival on the very same property.
