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.
Another attraction that’s also close by is Fantasy Farms. It’s home to Petey’s Pumpkin Patch and Reapers Maze of Terror in the fall. Petey’s is a family-friendly event with a field of pumpkins, a corn maze, train rides and other activities for kids and their families. Reapers, meanwhile, is a hard-core haunted attraction.
Another fabulous place with pumpkins, a corn maze and child-friendly activities is Maan Farms. It too has both fun activities for young families during the day and ultra-scary Halloween attractions for older youth and adults at night.
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 2022 being its 24th year.

About the Chilliwack Corn Maze
Each year the farm constructs a new layout for their corn maze. In 2020 the maze was designed around the word “together” to represent how the world came together in the face of the coronavirus. The design featured the word along with a depiction of the earth surrounded by people holding hands.
In 2021, the maze’s design featured the word “Wander”, along with large outlines of a mountainous landscape. The design was meant to inspire folks of all ages to stay present and seek joy in everything.
The 2022 corn maze design is made in partnership with Science World. There’s a T. Rex on the right side and a chicken on the left side. The maze connects the two different species as both belong to the Theropoda group.
Fun Fact: The corn maze is usually 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.
In 2022 tickets are available both online and on-site. Unlike in years past there are not tiers for admission prices. Everyone ages 3 to 74 pays the same price during the fall season: $16 when paying online and $18 at the door. Infants and seniors 75 and up are free.
Dates and Hours
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 Halloween. In 2021 the maze was open from August 13th until October 31st.
The pumpkin patch at the farm is usually open from the end of September until Halloween.
Hours of operation for the farm in 2022 are listed below. Times listed may vary, so be sure to check the official website for the most up-to-date information.
