A couple of years ago the venue had an Animal Safari drive-thru-style event on the Easter Long Weekend because of COVID-19. In 2022 the farm hosted Easter-themed activities once again, although this year not in a drive-thru format.
EASTER ACTIVITIES IN 2022
This past year Maan Farms hosted two different kinds of Easter events. One was for adults and the other was for children and their families.
Bunnies & Booze was an Easter-themed event for folks ages 19+. It took place on the Friday and Saturday of April 8th and 9th. Included with admission was a beer or glass of wine plus food, games and an Easter egg hunt for adults.
The following weekend there was Baby Animal Easter Days which was a kid-friendly event with farm animals and the Easter Bunny. It happened on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of April 15th to 17th.
For details about these two events visit the Maan Farms website.
Easter at Maan Farms
In normal years Maan Farms hosts their Easter Egg-Stravaganza event over the Easter Long Weekend. However, in 2021, the annual springtime event took place a bit differently.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions on large gatherings in BC, the Maan Farms Easter event happened in a drive-thru safari format a couple of years ago. Visitors could stay in their cars and enjoy the attraction while adhering to physical distancing guidelines. It was awesome (and perfect for the times)!
In 2022 there were two different events at Maan Farms, both of which happened in-person and on-foot. The Baby Animal Easter Days event was for children and young families, while the Bunnies & Booze event was for adults only.
Bunnies & Booze (April 8th & 9th, 2022)
Bunnies & Booze was an Easter-themed event at Maan Farms for folks ages 19 and above. The event ran for two days on the weekend before Easter. At the event guests received a delicious dinner with their choice of wine or beer. There were also several fun games after the meal.
Then, when dusk arrives, everyone went outside for the adults-only Easter egg hunt. There were various prizes to be won including a grand prize case of wine! Everyone was asked to bring their own baskets and flashlights for the hunt.
Admission and Hours
In 2022, Bunnies & Booze took place on the Friday and Saturday of April 8th and 9th. The event ran from 6:00 pm until around 8:30 or so on both days (but you could stay until 10:00 if you wanted).
Tickets cost $79 each (plus taxes and online service fees). Unlike the other Easter event at Maan Farms, tickets for Bunnies & Booze were only available online. Admission included dinner with appetizers, one main dish and one glass of wine or beer. Also included was the egg hunt and goodie bag prizes.

Baby Animal Easter Days
In 2022 Baby Animal Easter Days was an interactive event at Maan Farms that featured a variety of kid-friendly activities. Guests could hold and hangout with six different baby farm animals that year, including bunnies, calves and pigs. Tickets also included an activity booklet with a scavenger hunt, and kids could collect eggs at different stations on-site and meet the Easter Bunny.
As usual with events at Maan Farms, tickets to Baby Animal Easter Days included admission to the Barnyard Adventureland as well, which is a great play area for kids.
Food wasn’t included in the cost of general admission this past year, but there were treats on sale at the farm. Egg-cellent ice cream, rice krispy treats, mini donuts, pies, samosas and butter chicken were all found at the Maan Farms Country Kitchen.
Admission and Hours on Easter Weekend
Baby Animal Easter Days was a three-day event from April 15th until April 17th in 2022. Hours of operation were between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm each day. 2023 will likely be similar.
Admission varies depending on your age and when you pay. If purchased online, tickets cost $18.50 per child and $14.50 per adult. If you paid at the gate, admission cost slightly more at $21.00 per child and $15.50 per adult.
In addition to the above, there was also a VIP package last year that cost $40.00 online or $45.00 at the gate. The VIP ticket included admission to the Easter event as well as food for the animals, some mini donuts, a glass of wine or lemonade, and a pass to come back another day.

The Easter egg hunt for children looks similar, but with much smaller and cuter participants! Both events are a ton of fun!
