I grew up going to The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island. Every year, my elementary school classmates and I would enjoy a trip around the amazing grounds – choosing pumpkins, visiting the big red barn, and enjoying one of the most delicious apples you’ll ever taste. As I got older, I found out about The Maize at The Pumpkin Patch….and it’s an absolute must for locals!
Seventeen years ago, Craig Easterly, founder of the original corn maze, brought his idea to Sauvie Island’s famous Pumpkin Patch and it soon became a beloved fall tradition. The MAiZE attracts 30,000 eager explorers annually to the giant labyrinth of field corn, located just fifteen minutes from downtown Portland. Portland’s premier agri-tainment attraction, The Maize and The Pumpkin Patch, have combined the local food movement with down home fun on the farm.
The MAiZE theme this year is “Dream Big” and depicts a happy child thrilled to find one of The Pumpkin Patch’s giant pumpkins in the field. The MAiZE encourages visitors to come out and enjoy the rest of this fantastic summer we have all been enjoying as they lose themselves in the two miles of twist and turns in the five acre cornfield.
You can get a peek at this year’s maze by visiting their website!
