When it comes to putting on fabulous events, Maan Farms knows a thing or two! They are a family-owned farm that has been in business for over 40 years.

An Idyllic Oasis Of Smiling Sunflowers

Are you ready to say goodbye to Summer and welcome Fall? Maan Farms helps you transition from one season to the next at their Picnic In The Petals event.

For a stunning picnic, go to the sunflower field at Maan Farms in Abbotsford. Not only can you stroll among the towering flowers, but now you can actually have a picnic while completely surrounded by them!

This lovely experience is ideal for taking photos, relaxing with a glass of wine, and appreciating the final beauty of summer with those you care about.

This is a great opportunity to get out of the city and enjoy some time in nature. The event takes place on select days in September. During this time, you’ll be able to picnic amongst the flowers while enjoying a delicious meal.

Arrive Early To Maan Farms

With a 90-minute time frame to be at your picnic table, you will want to arrive 15 minutes before your reservation. Food is made fresh to order, and like a restaurant, your meal will take a little time. Arriving 15 minutes early will ensure you get the most out of your picnic experience.

You will check-in, order, and pick up your food at the farm store. Once you pick up your food, you will walk up McKenzie street and then across Vye Road Towards the quaint little yellow door hidden among the corn stalks.

Opening the door, you walk into a magical area of sunflowers with plenty of picnic tables to choose from.

You are purchasing a rain-or-shine ticket, so about half of the picnic tables are umbrella covered. We opted to take the chance with the forecasted rain and sit at an open-air picnic table — and it was glorious! The rain started soon after we were done with our meal and were wandering the sunflowers.

Meal Options

When you go to Maan Farms, whether you’re grabbing a bit to eat or some special items in their farm store, or enjoying some of their wine, you are getting quality, hands down.

The meal selections for Picnic In The Petals were no exception.

We opted to try everything on offer: Tandoori Chicken, an Indian twist on the Charcuterie box that also included a delicious samosa and pakora. The kids all had chicken fingers and fries. For drinks, the kids loved their berry slushies, and we adults swooned over the wine slushie. We couldn’t have asked for a better meal!

Also Included With Your Ticket

Your ticket to the festival gains you access to the sunflower picnic, as well as a pass to both the petting zoo and their Barnyard Adventureland.
