Easter, Fantasy Farms and other Events
Fantasy Farms is a family-owned and operated farm located at 9423 Gibson Road in Chilliwack. In addition to growing flowers and produce, the farm hosts a number of great events at various times of the year.
People travel from all across the Lower Mainland for the farm’s Easter event in the spring, the Chilliwack Garlic Festival in the summer and both Petey’s Pumpkin Patch and Reaper’s Haunted Corn Maze in October. In December there is also Petey’s Country Christmas.
Easter at Fantasy Farms in Chilliwack
Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza took place in 2019 on three different weekends in April. The event was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19. Last year the event happened as a drive-thru experience on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Easter weekend.
In 2022, the event is back to offering hands-on activities you can do with family members and friends. This year, Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza takes place from Thursday, April 14th, until Monday, April 18th.
Daily hours from the Thursday to the Sunday this year are from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. Hours on the Monday, however, are from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.
Admission to the Easter event in 2022 costs $12 per child and $6 per adult (including GST). Children under the age of 1 always enter for free.
This year, admission for children includes an Easter-themed activity book and a small goodie bag. Tickets are available on-site.
Easter Event Activities
At the Easter-themed drive-thru event in 2021, families drove past a number of farm animals. While exploring the farm from the comfort and safety of the family car, children looked out for clues, solved riddles and deciphered a secret code. Prizes in 2021 included a Fantasy Farm Easter activity book and a tasty Easter gift.
In 2022, Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza looks more like it did in years prior to COVID-19. There’s the classic Easter Egg Hunt, which takes place in a new mini maze this year. In addition, there’s the miniature train which includes photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny. There is also a planting station, two indoor barns and a new colouring booth. It’s a great family-friendly event!
What we like about Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza
There are a number of things we really like about Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza. Not least of which, it’s affordable and good old-fashioned fun.
The event takes place at a farm and there are real farm animals that kids can see and even touch sometimes. There is a train that kids and their families can ride on around the property, and there are indoor activities too (which is nice on rainy days).
Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza is a perfect place for young children and their families to have Easter-themed fun.
Tips and Advice
Below are some suggestions and extra information to help you make the most out of your experience at Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza.
TIP #1: Expect to stay for up to a couple of hours (plus or minus). Between the egg hunting, barn, train ride and more, there is a fair bit to keep little folk busy!
TIP #2: If travelling from far away, combine your trip to Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza with a visit to other attractions in the area. The Chilliwack Tulip Festival is only a 15-minute drive away (at 41310 Yale Road). It usually starts up in mid-April, however, so isn’t always operating in time for the Easter Weekend. Harrison Hot Springs is also beautiful this time of year and just 25 km or so north of Fantasy Farms.
TIP #3: Check out some of the other events at Fantasy Farms at other times of the year too. The Easter event is definitely for younger children, as is Petey’s Pumpkin Patch in October and Petey’s Country Christmas in December. Reaper’s at Halloween, meanwhile, is one of the Lower Mainland’s scariest and most popular haunted houses.
TIP #4: If going to the event, be sure to try some of the barbecue ribs from Guerilla Q if it’s there. If you like pork ribs, you’ll love what Guerilla Q has to offer!
