Fall Festival Open Through October 31, 2021

2021 Fresh Acres Corn Maze

On September 11, 2021, we will open our fall festival located at 7385 Jason Ave NE, Monticello MN, which is 30 minutes from both Minneapolis & St Cloud. The festival will be open weekends through October 31, and will also be open for MEA break October 21 and 22. Hours are 10am until 6pm. Ticket price for admission is $10 per person ages 4-69, and can be purchased at the gate or online.


This year’s festival and maze design commemorate the 20th anniversary of the events that occurred on September 11, 2001.  While the events that day were devastating to our nation, it was also a time we saw countless examples of heroism, as well as unity and patriotism in the citizens of this great country. In the words of Fred Rogers, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” This year’s maze design and theme has these words in mind as we remember and honor our fallen heroes.”


Opening Day will start at 10am with a ceremony to honor the First Responders and Military lives lost as a result of the events on 9/11, after which the maze and activities will open for the season. On opening day, the first 412 First Responders and Military through the gate will get in free, honoring the 412 First Responders who lost their lives during the search and rescue mission on 9/11. Through the remainder of the season, First Responders and Military will receive a $2 discount with a valid ID.

COVID Safety Precautions 

As a local family farm with deep ties to our community, we have heard from our neighbors & friends about the importance of togetherness & traditions. That’s why we are excited to be open & able to offer an opportunity to enjoy the fall festival while keeping you & your family as safe as possible.

The safety of our guests & employees is our top priority. That’s why Fresh Acres is following all CDC, state & local guidelines as it relates to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Here’s what we’re doing to protect the health & safety of everyone on our festival grounds.

  1. Hand washing and sanitizing stations

    1. Stations are located at key high touch locations.

  2. Contactless ticketing

    1. We encourage online contactless ticketing as a payment option.  However you can also pay when you arrive.


Steps you should take to make your visit to Fresh Acres Fall Festival the best one yet:

  1. Visit the our farm only when you are healthy.

    1. If you have a fever, other symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, please stay home.

  2. Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between your group & others.

  3. Use hand sanitizer &/or wash your hands frequently while on our farm.


Due to being an outdoor event, masks are optional but encouraged when you are within 6 feet of others not in your party.  By working together, we can help each other stay healthy while spending time with our families & friends. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Fall Festivities & Activities


In addition to the food, mazes, and petting zoo, we have additional activities for all ages.

New in 2021 come see the combine slide!  We have converted a real combine into an attraction where people of all ages can "drive" the combine and then take a slide back down.  THis is sure to be a fun time.  There are also inflatables, bale mountain, giant jenga, giant tic-tac-toe, tires to climb on/through and a corn cannon.  

Some weekends will have additional activities - watch our Facebook page for more details.

We also have pumpkins, cornstalk bundles, firewood and straw bales for sale.  Get your fall family fun and decorating items all in one place!



Ensuring everyone has the chance to enjoy the maze is important to us.  

With that in mind we partnered with Sand Pine Pheasants in Avon, MN to have one Action TrackChair onsite every weekend.  The chair is free to use for paid visitors that are wheelchair bound and do not have access to a chair that can maneuver through the rough field.

We anticipate demand to be high so please call ahead of time to reserve a two hour time slot.
