Summers Farm Carves Election-Themed Corn Maze for A-Mazing Fall Festival in Frederick, Maryland

Share Article

Beginning Saturday, September 22, corn maze fans vote with their feet as they twist and turn through a 12 acre cornfield carved with an election-inspired theme at Summers Farm. The corn maze is just one of many fall attractions luring metro-area visitors looking for pumpkins, hayrides, jumping pillows, kettle corn, a barnyard of animals -- all on a day at the farm.

“It is a politically-charged election year, so why not celebrate the right to vote with an election-themed maze?” stated Jeff Greenwood. With Teresa, his wife, they have developed an agri-adventure that has made the farm a premier fall tourism destination in Frederick. In it's 15th year, Summers Farm continues to offer family-friendly entertainment that includes ten-plus acres of a cornfield with a themed design to get lost inside a maze.

“We’ve logged lots of hours developing this homegrown fall festival which began with Teresa at least 16 years ago,” Greenwood added. “With every passing year, we expand with new buildings, new animals, new products, and new experiences. We’re incorporating all kinds of fun for folks of all ages so that folks come back year after year.”

This year’s festival features old-fashioned hayrides, giant mountain slides, two gigantic jumping pillows, fast-and-furious pig races, pumpkin patch and all new Farmer Golf. Enjoy sweet treats from the bakery and delicious farm fresh food from the Barnyard Grill. Moonlit fun extends after dark with reserved campfires and evening admission to the maze with flashlights encouraged.

Summers Farm is located at 5614 Butterfly Lane in Frederick. The festival is open daily from Saturday, September 22 through Tuesday, November 6.
