Harvesting Memories: The 6 Best Ann Arbor Corn Mazes

Have you been to one of the many Michigan Corn Mazes near me? I never explored a corn maze as a child – I never remember hearing about them where I grew up – mostly suburban areas on the east coast. We did our first corn maze with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop when she was a Brownie about 10 years ago. Now, we make an effort to visit each year.

The first corn maze we ever did was the Talladay Farms Corn Maze in 2013. Sadly they have since closed after a few rough weather years followed by the pandemic. In more recent years we visited Blast Corn Maze which is now my pick for best corn maze in Michigan!

When to Visit a Corn Maze

Corn Mazes start opening in mid-September and are usually open through the last weekend of October or the first weekend of November.

Personally, I prefer visiting the corn maze after dark. Be sure to check the list below to find a night corn maze near us – many are only open during daylight hours. A flashlight is typically required after dark. Many farms sell flashlights, but we recommend bringing your own.

After visiting Blast last weekend, we noticed it was brighter than we remembered. We must have been earlier in October than our usual visits.

Ann Arbor Corn Mazes No Longer Open

Some corn mazes have closed in recent years. We are listing them here for reference.

  • Talladay Corn Maze – 6270 Judd Rd, Milan – Last open in 2017. A 2018 drought, wet 2019, and the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have ended their business.
  • Coleman’s Farm – 12578 Jordan Rd, Saline – Still open with u-pick apples, pumpkins, and treats, but they no longer offer a corn maze.

Any Others?

Have I missed any corn mazes in the Ann Arbor area? Which is your favorite?
