WEST FARGO — The Lost in the Valley Corn Maze at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds is now open.

The maze was originally supposed to open Friday, Sept. 23, but weather delayed the first day to Saturday.

The corn maze will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until the Oct. 30, with each day having different hours of operation:

  • Fridays: 5 - 8 p.m.
  • Saturdays: 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.
  • Sundays: 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

The pumpkin patch will also be open on those days. The maze has grown to 22 acres and has been moved from its spot last year. It is now behind the race track at the fairgrounds.

"We moved locations. We are two times as big for the maze, for our court yard, for everything, so we are definitely growing," said Red River Valley Marketing Director Elizabeth Birkemeyer.


Making its return this year is the Dazed in the Maze event.

A measure to avoid a rail strike will now goes to the President, where he says he will sign it as soon as it came to his desk.

"We'll have three dazed in the mazes this year. Sept. 23, Sept. 27 and Oct. 21," Birkemeyer said. "We'll have local breweries, wineries, meadery, so all of your local favorites inside the maze so, people as they navigate through the maze can grab a drink along the way."

For those who can't find their way out of the maze, there is a GPS app people can download to get out.

Birkemeyer encourages people to purchase tickets in advance online, since it is cheaper then at the gate.
