A new northern festival is ready to bloom

Get ready Prince George, because the newest summer attraction is opening this August.

Brought to you by Foreman Farms and Northern Lights Winery, “The Sunflower Festival” is a family-friendly, walk-through event held just 10 minutes from downtown Prince George. Come experience a beautiful field of sunflowers, enjoy interactive and static photo stations around the property, and stop by the on-site concession, Bloom, for a summertime treat. There will also be an animal viewing area featuring goats, chickens, and pigs.

The Sunflower Festival will open to the public once the sunflowers have bloomed, around mid-August. After it’s open, the festival will run seven days a week during August with varying weekday and weekend hours (check out https://www.northernlightswinery.ca/sunflower-fest for exact hours). September hours will vary slightly. It’s recommended to go early in the season to ensure the best viewing experience.
Foreman Farms is a property owned by Northern Lights Winery on Foreman Road, just 10 minutes from downtown, off Highway 16.

This family owned company has been doing business in Prince George since 1988 and strives to provide the best experiences in northern B.C. and provide community building opportunities.

“We are incredibly passionate about bringing new events to northern B.C. that our community can be proud of,” said Northern Lights CEO Doug Bell. “The PG Sunflower Festival is going to provide incredible memories for families, visitors, and kids in a safe environment that is a short drive from downtown. I am hopeful that many people will enjoy the event this year and will allow us to grow and continue this event annually in the future.”

TourismPG CEO Colin Carson added: “Destination Development, and specifically creating new experiences in Prince George, is one of Tourism Prince George’s pillars, and we’re confident that the Sunflower Festival will do just that. This new attraction just adds to the already robust and vibrant tourism offerings in our city. We can’t wait to see it grow.”
