Many of us have spent the last seven months trapped in the same cycle –home, work, and very little in between. For a lot of us, even spending hours outdoors seems like a forbidden memory while the walls of our home grow familiarly tighter each day. Fortunately, there is a solution if you are feeling overwhelmed with being stuck indoors. That solution begins at one of Anne Arundel County’s fun-filled farm festivals. It is time to add an extra layer or two to your outerwear and head outside for some fresh air and lots of safe fun!
Weekends are bound to be more exciting when a corn maze, jumping pillow, and a cow train is involved. If you are looking for a family-friendly place to take in the Autumn sun, be sure to add Greenstreet Gardens to your Fall Fest bucket list. The farm features a lively array of family fun for all ages, including a pumpkin patch ready for the picking. Tickets for Fall Fun on the Farm are available on the Greenstreet Garden website.

Maryland Sunrise Farms – Corn Maze
In an 8-acre corn maze, you can emerge from the stalks as a master navigator or get lost. Whether you take the longest route or the shortest route, you are bound to have loads of fun in the Maryland Corn Maze. Once you are done venturing through the maze, you can hang out with the animals at the petting zoo, hop on a hayride, climb tight ropes, or rope ladders, visit the Wand shop and maybe learn to cast a spell or two. The list of fun things to do is seemingly endless at this Fall Fest! For a complete list of activities, visit the Maryland Corn Maze website.
