Family time is so precious, isn’t it? Some days, we mean that literally and some days it might sound a little more sarcastic. Either way, we know it’s true, but sometimes it’s hard to find a place where everyone can get out of the house and have a good time together.
The Calgary Corn Maze and Fun Farm is one of Alberta’s favourite destinations for agri-fun. Founded in 2008, it offers city kids fun-filled adventures on the farm, only a short drive away. With many engaging activities, there’s enough going on to keep the whole family interested, and perhaps more importantly, offers enough space for kids to burn some of their remarkable energy. The best formula for great family time is family + fun + tired, happy kids that fall into bed at night!
Far more than just a corn maze, Calgary Corn Maze and Fun Farm offers animals, games, and terrific activities all summer long. Make friends with the barnyard animals at the petting zoo, watch the pig races, ride the train, or shoot it up in the Wild West paintball shooting gallery. Or try for a hole in one on the mini-golf course. With jumping pillows, zip lines, and the ropes course, everyone in your family will enjoy some high energy excitement. When the fall blows in, lose (and find!) yourself in over 13 acres of corn mazes, including a smaller maze perfect for the little ones. Pick your perfect pumpkin and enjoy the crisp fall air.
The Calgary Corn Maze also provides memorable summer camps for kids ages 4 to 12. Fun meets the farm here and campers will enjoy the petting farm, zip lines, ropes course, miniature train, mini golf, jumping pillows, giant slides, many playground activities, and so much more! Lunches and before and after care are also available, to make parents’ lives that much easier. And don’t worry about inclement weather days, there is an indoor area where the campers can stay safe and dry, while still enjoying camp.
If your child loves the outdoors and the activities at the Calgary Corn Maze, you can plan their next birthday party there! With all the activities available and 3 party options to choose from, it’s a breeze to plan the perfect birthday for your child out in the fresh air. (There’s even an option that includes loot bags and food!)
When to Visit
The Calgary Corn Maze is open from June 2 to October 28, 2018. They’re open Thursday through Sunday in June and Wednesday through Sunday (plus, holiday Mondays) in July and August. For September through October, they are open Friday through Sunday (plus, holiday Mondays). Be sure to check their page for updates regarding specific hours, maze conditions, and extreme weather closures.
With so many great activities, plus special events, you don’t have to wait until the “corn is as high as an elephant’s eye” to enjoy a perfect family day. During the first couple of weekends in June, come to visit the Baby Animal Festival. Summer is a great time to visit the farm, and it’s often the least busy time if you want to avoid crowds. The second weekend in August is the Sweet Summer Corn Fest where you can celebrate all things corn. Of course, the end of summer also brings the corn mazes to their finest height and starting towards the end of September, the mazes are open late for Flashlight Nights, where you can come get lost in the dark. (Don’t forget your own flashlight and sense of direction; you’ll definitely need both!) Then, over weekends in October, head to the farm for the pumpkin fest for a chance to celebrate fall.
Enjoy your precious family time (without resorting to sarcasm!) this summer and fall at the Calgary Corn Maze. There’s so much going on, everyone will find something they love!
