Bradner resides in the northwest corner of Abbotsford and is one of the more rural neighbourhoods. Its name originates from a settler who lived in the area in 1895, Thomas Bradner. Bradner is an agricultural-driven industry that thrives and brings in a great deal of income and jobs for the community. The rolling fields and picturesque views of Mt. Baker are only a few reasons people flock to Bradner. The crops are a sight to see when they are in full bloom, and they are adored by those who have a chance to see the annual blooms, particularly daffodils. This show has been ongoing since 1928, when a settler from Vancouver named Fenwick Fatkin wanted other local growers to showcase them.

Lehman Cheese Co. has a small store on-site to purchase some of the highest quality, locally produced cheeses.
Another timely and loved tradition for the community is the annual May Day parade. Every year, a sixth-grade student is selected to become the May Queen, and now they even select a May King.
