  • Northwest Folklife
    Chocolate lovers unite at the Northwest Chocolate Festival, an annual event dedicated not just to eating chocolate in its many forms, but to tracking its journey from cocoa bean to confection. Visitors hone their expertise through seminars on trade equity and cocoa farming, chocolate-making workshops led by confectioners, and tastings where palates learn to distinguish between milk chocolate and a chocolate bar clumsily forced inside a milk jug. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefits local nonprofits aligned with the festival?s mission. Recipients are announced yearly.

  • LMG Concerts
    Two of Christian music?s most iconic artists, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith join forces to spread the good news, leading congregations in melodious worship on their 2 Friends Tour. Since 1982, this dynamic duo has engaged millions to flock to their catchy, ecclesiastical pop music, sharing a musical camaraderie as impenetrable as a fortress with abandonment issues. Amy Grant, author of No. 1 hits such as ?El Shaddai? and ?Baby Baby,? has shared her gift of song for more than 30 years, selling more than 30 million albums, garnering six Grammys, and earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Michael W. Smith has earned countless accolades with his tremendous songbook of head-bobbing hymns and choir-rousing hits. Sharing the stage for the first time in two decades, Amy and Michael thrill fans with new psalms and favorites from their sonic scroll, merging their sets with joyful duets and chemistry that crackles like Abbott and Costello after getting struck by lightning.

  • Wet Coast Events
    Smiling faces surround a typical Wet Coast Events finish line, where participants of all ages show off medals awarded for completing one of the organization's signature races. Wet Coast's team has plenty to smile about, as well. With each happy finisher, they advance their goal of promoting healthier lifestyles through walking and running?two activities they try to make as fun as humanly possible. Founded and staffed by enthusiastic runners, Wet Coast Events puts wild and occasionally wacky twists on 5K, 10K, and marathon events held throughout the Fraser Valley. Take, for example, their Zombie Fun Run, during which hordes of undead zombies chase "survivors" down the length of the course. These hired actors provide the kind of motivation a normal trainer would be hard-pressed to deliver, even with the traditional cupcake-on-a-stick method. Another popular race winds through the scenic trails around Flora Lake in Chilliwack, while the ingenious Fraser Valley Beer Mile allows racers to pause for a beer between laps.

  • Maan Farms Market & Country Kitchen
    Though it started as a small berry stand in 1977, Maan Farms Market & Estate Winery has spent the last three decades expanding, accommodating, and providing its community with a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of urban living. One constant during that time, however, has been the family's dedication to producing fresh edibles, from juicy berries picked during the summer, to the crisp vegetables and sweet corn that spread across tables in the fall. Today, those are also supplemented by fermented produce: fruit wines, made from the farm's own berries and sold by experts who always have a pairing suggestion on hand. While visiting the farm, guests can utilize those wholesome treats as fuel to explore the property's collection of activities, including the Critter Corral, where pigs, bunnies, and ducks elicit wonder by munching scoops of food or re-enacting chapters from Charlotte's Web. A bird sanctuary, a patch of pumpkins ranging from 10 to 100 pounds, a panoramic view of the valley, and a trio of mazes?including Papa Joe's corn maze?round out the lineup of agricultural attractions, which group tours, birthday parties, and campers can take advantage of at various times throughout the year.
