The Abbotsford Sunflower Festival is back and has an all-new photo-opp to enjoy this summer.

The newly-installed Valley Rainbow was put up in celebration of people of colour and the LGBTQ2+ community. Find this vibrant symbol of diversity at Maan Farms.

“The Valley Rainbow is a representation of our Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) and LGBTQ2s+ employees, patrons, and community members. During sunflower season, it will stand in the field, bringing light to Indigenous invisibility, anti-blackness, transphobia, homophobia, and all racial and sexual orientation injustices,” said Amir Maan, operations manager and farmer.
