When the air gets crisp, we can start to feel fall in the air and start thinking of all the fun harvest activities that we can enjoy as a family including corn mazes, apple picking, pumpkin picking, petting zoos, farms and Thanksgiving festivals. Autumn brings a new set of unique seasonal activities for families to enjoy and visiting a local corn maze is on our bucket list every season!
Many farms not only have apple picking and pumpkin picking but have a variety of other fun activities like corn mazes. Navigating a corn maze with you kids can be a fun way to spend time on the farm and can be a memorable experience. Corn Maze season in Ontario mostly runs from Labor Day weekend (and early August in select farms) to October end.
There are a variety of corn mazes around the Greater Toronto Area that are perfect for families of all ages and even encourage families to communicate and work together to navigate the maze! Corn mazes are the most fun you will ever have getting lost!
