Explore the Sunflower and Corn Mazes of New Jersey!

Updated: Jun 29, 2017 Short URL: gonj.me/sunmaze

Update 2017-06-29: The list below was originally created in 2016. As we learn more about the late summer/early fall 2017 season we will update all the information below.

When I see a sunflower field, it makes me happy! The brilliant colors of the flower and the thousands of seeds in the center create a delightful sight. Each summer season, farms around New Jersey bring these beautiful sights to you.

In August 2013, the owner of the Sussex County Sunflower Maze invited us to visit their great location. This was the first time we had ever been to a sunflower maze, and fell in love immediately. Don't believe me? Maybe these will convince you :)

Ever since that first visit, we have tried to share this fun season with as many people as we can. Below we've compiled a list of sunflower mazes and corn mazes to take you from summer fun into the fall festival season. We will update this list as we learn about more fun places for you to Get Outside! If you know of any to add, please let us know!

View by county: Essex County, Hunterdon County, Mercer County, Monmouth County, Morris County, Sussex County, Warren County

Please Note: Sunflowers usually bloom from mid August to the first frost. Depending on the weather the blooms may only last few a few weeks. Corn mazes may last much longer, offering a fun day of exploration into the fall season. Please plan accordingly.
