Located about 90 km from downtown Vancouver, the Chilliwack Corn Maze and Pumpkin Farm is a popular attraction that runs in the weeks leading up to Halloween.
The farm is located close to where the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival takes place in the late summer and early fall. The two venues are on the same road and only about a kilometre apart.
The Fraser Valley’s Chilliwack Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch
The Chilliwack Corn Maze and Pumpkin Farm is a large farm located at 41905 Old Yale Road in Chilliwack. The farm is set on about 20 acres of land, 12 of which are used for the corn maze.
With corn mazes and pumpkin patches being a traditional part of fall in the Lower Mainland, the Chilliwack Corn Maze is a popular place. The corn maze has been in operation since 1999, with 2020 being its 22nd year.

About the Chilliwack Corn Maze
Each year the farm constructs a new layout for their corn maze. In 2020 the maze is designed around the word “together” to represent how the world has come together in the face of the coronavirus. The design features the word along with a depiction of the earth surrounded by people holding hands.
Fun Fact: The corn maze is made out of corn used for cow feed. The corn is not sweet and so is not good to eat. At the end of the season, all the corn from the maze is chopped up and fed to cattle.
Due to the global pandemic, the corn maze was designed slightly differently from normal in 2020. The paths are wider and the intersections contain room for people to pass. The farm is also operating at limited capacity to encourage physical distancing.
In 2020 tickets are sold in one-hour time slots in order to maximize physical distancing on the farm. Prices listed below do not include taxes or fees.
- Adults (ages 15 or older) – $12.75
- Children (ages 2 to 14) – $10.75
- Tots (under age 2) – Free!

The corn maze and the pumpkin patch are usually open at different times due to the different growing seasons of each crop. The corn maze usually runs each year from around mid-August until mid-September. In 2020 the maze is open from August 15th until September 22nd.
