Explore Edmonton: Visiting the Edmonton Corn Maze (Enter to win free passes!)

Edmonton Corn Maze

While summer may mainly be over now, there are still so many events and activities to do in Edmonton!

Something we had been meaning to do all summer but kept missing, was visiting the Edmonton Corn Maze. We finally went over the long weekend!

Edmonton Corn Maze
About to head into the Edmonton Corn Maze!
The Edmonton Corn Maze is located just slightly south west of the city (it’s like a 10-minute drive from where we live on the west end – super close!)

We had only ever been to this corn maze when they used to do Farm of Fear Halloween nights (unfortunately they haven’t done that in the last few years) so it was a totally different feeling visiting when it was light out (and zombies weren’t trying to attack you lol).

Edmonton Corn Maze
Follow the leader!
The 15-acre field of corn is split into a few different paths (of increasing levels of difficulty).

Before you enter, you can grab some sheets with clues and riddles that when answered correctly, will guide you the right direction through the maze.

There’s also a smartphone / GPS system that can track where you’re going in the maze and you can hit up checkpoints on your phone to get riddles/clues for directions too!

The smartphone / GPS technology is pretty cool but definitely takes away from the whole getting lost aspect as you can clearly see where you are in the maze (even if you’re not quite sure how to get out!)

Edmonton Corn Maze
Corn mazes are pretty high-tech now!
We spent about an hour working our way through the maze paths – bumping into families (lots of kids!) and even some groups with dogs!

Yes you can bring your dogs to the corn maze. I wish we had checked out the F.A.Q. before we went because we definitely would’ve brought Olive and Artie!

Edmonton Corn Maze
Lots of family fun at the Edmonton Corn Maze.
While the corn maze is the main attraction at this family farm, the Kraay family has done a really fantastic job adding lots of different family friendly activities on site including a petting zoo, a ‘jumping pillow’ (like a giant trampoline in the ground), pedal carts and more!

Considering it’s just $12 to get in for adults, $9 for youth and free for kids 5 and under, you can really get a lot of hours of family fun in at the Edmonton Corn Maze for a pretty low cost.

The farm also has their own concession too so you can have lunch here too!

Edmonton Corn Maze
These corn stalks are gigantic!
Basically, we had a great time and I definitely think you would too.

The Edmonton Corn Maze’s fall hours are Sept. 6 until October 23.

Tuesday – Thursday: 12pm – 8pm
Friday – Saturday: 10am- 9pm
Sunday: 1pm 5pm
Mondays: Closed

The same family who runs this farm also operate the Lacombe Corn Maze, which is super popular for their crazy corn maze designs! Lacombe isn’t too far from Edmonton either so you should/could really do both.

P.S. You could eat the corn that’s growing in these mazes but they probably wouldn’t taste very good. Most of the energy goes into growing the corn plant tall so the cobs actually taste bitter and mealy. I didn’t actually try it but that’s what the website says, lol. #themoreyouknow

    Best way to eat corn: roasted on the BBQ in its husk and with loads of butter and salt. Yum.

  • Josephine

    Best corn = grilled and coated in mayo, butter & salt and pepper. Sooooo good!

  • Dan

    Best corn comes from my back yard and is on my plate within an hour of harvest! On the BBQ wrapped in a wet paper tower then tinfoil is the tastiest!

  • Eva Mitton-Urban

    Attended River Day, Rundle Park, Edmonton, in June with my son and his friend Hau and his Mom, Helen. She packed a lunch – Sandwiches/Salads and Corn On The Cob. It was so juicy and delicious, so I asked how it was prepared. She cuts the cob in half – brushes it with Garlic Butter/Parsley/Sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese – places them in Ziploc bags and cooks them in the microwave for 10 minutes. Cobs remain sealed till the lunch hour. I still prepare it the same way and yes it is a topic of conversation – pay the recipes forward.

  • Sunday at the @Cat_Cafe_On_Whyte! 😻💚 My first time back since they opened in April. So happy to see that since then—80 cats have been adopted, they’ve expanded their drinks & pastry menu (and made it unlimited drinks for the hour), added merchandise, and the place was packed! #purrfect

  • Ventured north for handmade pizza 🍕 and pasta 🍝 at @saccomannos1965! Delicious food at really good prices from this family-run business (since 1965!) They just held a grand re-opening in December. Blog post soon! We also discovered a huge fenced in dog park in this area. 🐶 Can’t wait to come back to try more dishes and take the pups to the park. 😊

  • I came for the #Instagrammable Skating Rink. 💕 I think that probably sounds silly, but I do love how “Instagrammable” spaces can encourage people to #ExploreEdmonton! Had a lovely double date at the lovely Victoria Park Oval & Freezeway with @mikethyking, @littlmissandrea & Gordon! ⛸👯‍♀️👯‍♂️

  • Ohhhhh so many feelings. ❤️ I had such an incredible experience watching @traviswall’s @shapingsoundco AND finally meeting Travis! Fun fact: I used to run a fan page for Travis back during his early #SoYouThinkYouCanDance days. He said he used to check the page for updates on himself, lol. 😂❤️ Thank you to the @albertaballetcanada for inviting me to see this phenomenal show with just the most ridiculously talented dancers! 💃🏻🕺 and for asking me to host the pre-show #DanceTalks Q&A. 🤓 Thanks to @nikolevallins for arranging the meet & greet 📸 and thanks to my old friend @jasmine.topham for coming & sharing in the #SYTYCD love! So happy. ❤️

  • When it’s -32C out ☃️, there’s no better food choice. 🍜 I warm right up with my mom’s pho at @KingNoodleHouse! (and you can too! 😉) I’m also excited to share that @KingNoodleHouse is participating in Edmonton’s first-ever #ChinatownDiningWeek! We’re offering a $15 two-course dinner option - your choice of a large bowl of pho + a spring roll & grilled pork balls platter. There are 4 other great restaurants in the area participating too. Learn more on my blog! (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻)

  • I’m such a sucker for eggs on anything—especially on poutine—ESPECIALLY with shoestring skinny fries. 😍 This is The Cure from @centralsocialhall, with red wine gravy, avocado, bacon and a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce. It’s eggcellent! 🍳🍟😋
