Easter Animal Safari 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 takes place a bit differently.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions on large gatherings in BC, the Maan Farms Easter event is happening in a drive-thru safari format this year. Visitors can stay in their cars and enjoy the attraction while adhering to physical distancing guidelines.
Admission and Hours
The Easter Animal Safari is a three-day event from April 2nd until April 4th in 2021. Time slots can be booked any time between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm each day.
Admission costs $17.50 per vehicle. That means you can have 5 people in a car (all from the same bubble, of course) and it would cost the same as just 2 people in the same car. The minimum party size is 1 guest and the maximum is 10. (NOTE: The cost of admission doesn’t include any additional items such as treats, food or wine.)
In addition to the above, there is also a VIP package which includes admission to the safari as well as a play ‘n stay opportunity for $75. With the VIP package, after enjoying the drive-thru safari, you can stay and play for an hour, plus receive a bag of mini donuts and a family pass to come back and play again another day.
Tickets for the Maan Farms Easter Safari must be purchased online in advance. Sales start on Saturday, March 13th and go until tickets are sold out. To book your spot click Maan Farms at Easter.
TIP: If you purchase two or more season’s passes to Maan Farms you can get free entry to the Drive-Thru Easter Safari! Season’s passes cost just $28.95 per person for folk ages 3+.
About the Event
The Safari is a drive-thru event, meaning guests stay in their cars for the entire time. Visitors can listen to the tour via an audiobook. The audiobook talks about the five featured farm animals at the event as well as farming in general. There is also a live Easter Bunny in costume.
Food is not included in the cost of admission. Treats are, however, available for purchase. Curry bowls, butter chicken, Mama Maan’s samosas, hot dogs and fries are all found at the Maan Farms Country Kitchen. The place also serves sweet treats, hot and cold drinks and wine (for those age 19+).
In addition to the regular food items available, Maan Farms has introduced two new treats for purchase during the Easter event in 2021. Folk can now purchase home-made deep-fried lemon mini donuts served in an Easter carrot cone for $10. Also available is a vanilla soft-serve ice cream covered in caramel and served in a milk chocolate egg for $11. There is also a combo available for purchase where you can get both treats for $20.
