Hudson Valley Corn Mazes

Local farms offer corn mazes, hayrides and more family fun this October

corn maze, family fun

There is something truly exhilarating for kids (and adults too) for getting lost in a field of corn and finding your way out. Some local corn mazes offer a quick run through while others add cool features like scavenger hunts, smart phone interactions or haunted attractions for the tweens. Check the list below to find a corn maze for your family to enjoy this fall. 

Due to the pandemic not all activities are open. Please call to confirm that the corn maze is up and activities and running before you go!
