The Shipshewana Corn Maze is created with the goal of quality family fun in the traditional American way. Our corn maze is a safe and relaxing event for the whole family and gives the next generation an understanding on how corn is grown and used in our food today. So how did we come up with the idea of a corn maze in such a unique design? In discussing the area events and attractions at a recent family gathering, the idea of a corn maze was born, and with some research we found Mazeplay. Mazeplay has designed many mazes across the country and thousands enjoy the fun every year. We are located in the downtown area of Shipshewana, home of 16 historical murals, 100 shops and many restaurants. Come enjoy the challenge of the maze, bring your family and friends, there is something for all ages to enjoy at the Shipshewana Corn Maze. Labor Day September 7, 2015 hours 10 a.m.-10 p.m. For school groups call for an appointment.
