Petey’s Easter Eggstravaganza


The Easter Eggstravaganza is a family-friendly event at Fantasy Farms taking place on weekends leading up to and around the Easter Long Weekend in the spring. It includes an Easter egg hunt, appearances by the Easter Bunny and rides on the miniature train.

This event didn’t happen in 2020. In 2021 it ran in a drive-thru format. Last year, Petey’s Easter Eggstravaganza ran as an in-person event and it does so again in 2023. This year, the event includes the miniature train, egg hunt, crafts and more on April 7th to 9th.

Admission to Petey’s Easter Eggstravaganza in 2023 is $12 for children, $6 for adults and free for kids under 1 year of age. That’s the same as last year.

Chilliwack Garlic Festival


Fantasy Farms used to host the Chilliwack Garlic Festival on a weekend in August or September each year. The event featured a market, garlic for sale, food vendors, a beer garden, live music, train rides and family-friendly entertainment. There were also corn mazes to explore.

In 2019 the Chilliwack Garlic Festival celebrated its 9th year and took place earlier than usual. The 2019 dates were August 24th and 25th.

Because of COVID-19, the festival didn’t take place in 2020, 2021 or 2022. Hopefully it will happen again in 2023 (although we’re not sure if it will).

Admission to the festival usually costs around $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and children, and $24 for a family of 4. Parking is free and there is lots of it. In years with good weather as many as 2000 people attend on each of the two days.

Petey’s Pumpkin Patch


Petey’s Pumpkin Patch is an autumn-themed attraction that includes miniature train rides, a corn maze, an outdoor play area and farm animals. It runs most weekdays in October from around 1 pm until 5 pm, and from 10 am until 5 pm on weekends.

Admission to Petey’s Pumpkin Patch is usually around $10 per person or $30 for a family of 4 (or a couple of dollars less if you bring a donation for the food bank). Pumpkins are also for sale at the event for between around $2 and $25 most years.

While the pumpkin patch event is ideal for young children and their families, there are also ultra-scary things to see and do for older folk during the same month later in the evenings at Reaper’s.

In 2021 the event ran from September 25th until October 31st. There was a corn maze and other fun activities. The 2022 event ran during the whole month of October. 2023 details are to be confirmed.

Reaper’s Haunted Attraction & Maze of Terror


One of the Lower Mainland’s most impressive Halloween-themed places to visit is the Reaper’s Haunted Attraction at Fantasy Farms in October. The venue features a haunted house and “Maze of Terror” that fright seekers travel from all across the region to see.

Reaper’s is typically open most days in October, except for Mondays and a few other weekdays in the first half of the month. Hours of operation are usually from around 7 pm until between 9 and 11 pm depending on the day.

In 2020 the haunted house part of the attraction didn’t happen, but the Maze of Terror did. In 2021 they ran the Maze of Terror again. It opened on Friday, October 24th. The Maze of Terror ran on select dates in October of 2022 as well.

2023 dates and details are to be confirmed.

To give you an idea of what to expect, check out the following video of the Reapers Maze of Terror. As you’ll see, it’s in a real corn maze and it’s really dark. There are a couple of sort-of indoor areas, and there are lots of live scary monsters!

This video was taken in October of 2021. It shows just a few of the scenes that we saw on our visit. It was pretty cool!



Petey’s Country Christmas at Fantasy Farms


Fantasy Farms is home to Chilliwack’s most popular interactive and family-friendly Christmas attraction in December most years. Petey’s Country Christmas usually runs from early until late December.

In years when the live event does take place, and at the farm, activities at Petey’s Country Christmas include beautiful lights and festive decorations to admire, a bouncy castle, light maze and miniature train rides. There is also Santa Claus to chat with and other activities suitable for young children and their families.

In 2021, instead of hosting activities at the farm, Fantasy Farms hosted an awesome new event in downtown Chilliwack. Chilliwack Country Christmas ran from December 4th to December 24th. The main event didn’t happen in 2022.

2023 details are to be confirmed.
