Corn Mazes in Canada

Updated on December 8, 2015

Autumn, or Fall, is one of my favorite times of year. The leaves begin to turn to beautiful orange, red, and golds. There is a crispness in the air that is refreshing. This makes the fall a great time for outdoor activities.

If you're looking for something fun to do, find a local corn maze! I recently wrote a hub about Corn Mazes locations in the United States and thought I'd share some Canadian locations too.

Who would enjoy a corn maze?

  • Adults of any age out on a date
  • Families with young children
  • Families with teens
  • Social groups and clubs
  • Youth organizations
  • Church groups
  • Birthday parties

Perhaps you're not familiar with a corn maze. Corn mazes are simply mazes cut out in the middle of a cornfield. The designs can be simple to extremely intricate and complex. Many corn mazes are run by family farms and often provide lots of other activities in conjunction with the corn maze.

Other activities might include:

  • Fall festivals
  • Fruit and vegetable produce for sale
  • Pumpkin patch or farm
  • Corn cannons
  • Hayrides
  • Petting zoos
  • Halloween activities
  • Haunted maze
  • Arts and crafts
  • Face-painting
  • Concessions selling home-baked seasonal foods

Tips for Visiting a Corn Maze

Tips for having a good time at a corn maze:

  • Call ahead to make sure they are open and the last time they allow people to enter. Rather large mazes can take some time to complete and you want to allow enough time.
  • Weather can make a huge difference in a corn maze. A farmer will not allow folks into his field if it's too muddy. Even if it hasn't rained where you are, doesn't mean it didn't rain where he is. Check ahead.
  • No smoking...this should be common sense.
  • Dress appropriately. Wear good walking shoes, no open-toed shoes. If it's cool, take a light jacket or sweater or dress in layers so that you can remove a layer along the way if you get too warm.
  • Check online or in local newspapers for coupons, promotions, discounts, or group rates.

      I have to say that Murrays Maze (Boonstra Farms) is the WORST corn maze in Manitoba to go to. The crops were 3 feet high, you could see everything... including the Exit. Yet, when we paid the $12 entrance fee nobody had warned us about their crop conditions. I then sent a formal complaint to Carl Boonstra and he sent me back the most sarcastic and rude e-mail I've received. He told me that I should have just went to Amaze-n-Corn and that they did not need my input of how I was disappointed on my birthday, because he didn't care.

      If anyone is thinking about going there, please don't. Don't waste your money on this place, it's not worth it... and their customer service skills are terrible.

      Thanks for listening!

      Some mazes utilize other crops than corn...such as maize. Anything tall enough will work. :)

      I'm a little slow on the uptake - what a great idea!. Hadn't thought about how much fun they can be, but my region is a little tough on corn, it doesn't have much of a season. I probably need to find an alternative crop.

      Oh hey, another great hub, I went to the Chilliwack, BC one once. Got lost though. I've been to one in Hawaii too, come to think of it, I got lost in that one too.

      Hey stranger! It has been awhile, Whikat! Good to see you! I've had my US Corn Maze hub for about a week I guess and it has had really good success, and several had mentioned that I should go ahead and do the Canadian version as well. So, I did. You'll have to let me know how the seasonal corn job goes as well as your corn maze adventures this year!

      Hello friend, I apologize that it has been awhile. I enjoyed the article. I had to smile when I saw it, because working with corn in the fields is one of my new seasonal jobs. I get paid to be in the corn fields for awhile. :-) My daughters are looking forward to the corn mazes this year, we always have so much fun. This was a cool article.

      Hi, wealthmadehealthy! I use the directory as a starting point, but I look up all the websites myself and post the links. There actually were quite a few in the directory that were closed for 2009. I have been to one maze locally and loved it. It's just a great outdoor activity for this time of year.
