WNC’s Largest Corn Maze FAQs!
What is Eliada’s annual corn maze?
Eliada’s annual corn maze is a 12 acre maze with 2 unique trails cut out of a field of corn. Accompanying maps with check points help guide you through 4 miles of maze trails.
Also cut into the corn field are two Storybook Trails for children! These trails take you on a fun adventure as you read the stories of Spookley the Square Pumpkin and Ciderella and the Little Glass Sipper! Spookley and Ciderella merchandise are also for sale for children and families to continue to enjoy the stories and characters at home.
This year, Eliada is partnering with the Asheville Grown Business Alliance to create a “Love Asheville Give Local” theme in the maze. A giant heart, with this familiar slogan creates the maze trails and celebrates Eliada as a local charity in the region. The Asheville Grown Business Alliance’s mission is to support independently owned businesses in the community. “Local Independent Businesses cycle 3 times more money back in to the local economy and give greater support to a community’s
non-profit and civic needs” (http://ashevillegrown.com/). Eliada is proud to partner with Asheville Grown to highlight our local roots and promote other local businesses and non-profits in our region.
In addition to the corn maze, we have attractions like corn cannons with pumpkin men targets, a cow train, hayride, pumpkin patch, giant sandbox filled with corn kernels, haybale maze, spider-web net climb on, and giant slides! To learn more about our attractions click here!
The event also has a large tented picnic area where you can purchase food and beverages from our concession stand, play corn toss, or hop around on bouncy horses!
Additionally there is a smaller party tent that can be reserved for birthday parties or large groups. To reserve this tent please contact Alisa Brown at 828-254-5356 x300 or .
Where is ‘Fields of Fun’? In the past, Eliada’s 200-acre campus was a fully working farm. We are just five minutes from downtown Asheville, and have a lovely, expansive field that is ideal for a maze. You can even see the Biltmore Estate from our campus!
