Here’s everything you need to know about Middleton’s Fall Festival.

Sunflower Festival

New to the festival this year are eight acres of sunflowers and zinnias. For the next three weeks, you can pick from several varieties of flowers, just a short walk around the corn maze.

Tons of photo opportunities are available too. The Middletons made sure to put up oversized chairs, giant picture frames, and a hexagonal archway among the acres of flowers for you to get the perfect Instagram photo.

Flowers are not included in the entry admission; it’s $2 a bloom or $10 for six blooms.

The Mandalorian Corn Maze

After watching the iconic Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, on Disney+, Mark Middleton thought it would be fun to integrate it into the corn maze.

“I was like ‘Oh man, it’d be really cool to do a Mandalorian maze,’ and write ‘This is the way’ because it’s all about getting lost,” Middleton says.

There are two corn mazes to choose from. One is the Mandalorian, which is longer. Then there’s the smaller, Baby Yoda maze for kids.

The Pumpkin Patch

As always, you can pick the perfect pumpkin at the Fall Festival. Go through the patch and pick one from the vine, or choose from an assortment of pre-picked pumpkins at the market.

New this year is the pumpkin farmhouse, which has a wall of only pumpkins. Then, on Saturday nights only, there’s a fireworks show in the pumpkin patch to end the night.

Pumpkins are not included in the entry admission; pumpkins are $0.45/lb for any type.
