Cornbelly’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Fest

Pumpkin Patch 3

Corn Mazes
Though we spend much of the year working with the 225+ MAiZE locations around the world, our original location here in Utah is where you’ll find us each fall. Cornbelly’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Fest is really a labor of love for Brett and Nicole Herbst, family and friends. A lot has changed since our early days, as each year we travel the country looking for new ideas and ways to improve. After moving our corn maze to several locations in the last decade, we’ve finally found the perfect home at Thanksgiving Point. Below are some photos from previous years themes.

Pumpkin Princess Carriage
A favorite at Cornbelly’s  was the Pumpkin Princess Playland. Your little princes and princesses  enchanted by a birthday tea party area, horse-drawn “Cinderella” carriage, pumpkin princess autograph and photo area, small castle for children to play inside of, a “build-a-princess” scarecrow area, and other princess-themed activities.

Pumpkin Patch 2

Trick-or-Treat Trail
As you stroll through the kiddie maze on designated Saturdays in October, you just might bump into a few loveable characters passing out yummy Halloween treats. Each child will have the chance to trick-or-treat in the corn and find their own candy-filled treats! Check our Schedule of Events for days and times.

Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin Patch
Come and pick ’em … pick out your favorite pumpkin from the hundreds in our bigger and better pick-your-own pumpkin patch. Our pumpkin prices range from $1 to $10. Plus, look for the Spookley the Square Pumpkin storytelling boards along the way.

This Is The Place Heritage Park

This Is The Place Heritage Park - Salt Lake City, Utah, Historical Landmark, Pioneer Villages, LDS, Latter Day Saint History, Family, Park, Children't Activities, Pet Farms, HolidayThe West…just as it was! Step back in time with a visit to This Is The Place Heritage Park. The non-profit This Is The Place Foundation manages Utah’s premier living history attraction, our historic 450-acre Utah state Park. Our mission is to preserve and promote the heritage and history of Utah. You’ll find it alive in storied accounts of the settlement of the West, told by our knowledgeable interpreters in a setting of original and replica historic homes. You’ll also see artisans and interpreters demonstrate 19th Century frontier life in a working environment. While you look on, the blacksmith explains his trade while he creates items used elsewhere in the Village and the furniture-maker turns ordinary wood into a masterpiece!

A lively variety of domestic skills are demonstrated in Village homes. You can watch wool being carded and spun into yarn that will be colored with a kaleidoscope of dyes made from native plants, many grown right here at the Park. At another historic building, candles are being dipped layer-by-layer over a small open fire in the back yard and quilting demonstrations are sure to leave you warm at heart!

A visit to the Park is not a tour of historic artifacts behind velvet ropes and glass, but a true experience of life as it was in the early days of the West. The Native American Village offers a window to a world long since gone, where members of Utah’s indigenous tribes interpret the history of their native people. You can also enjoy the Park from the comfort of one of our three replica trains and see and hear the history of the settlement, or simply spend the day walking the quiet streets on your own.

There you’ll find one of our newest attractions, the Heritage Park Preview exhibition, along with one of Utah’s finest gift and souvenir shops. The ZCMI Mercantile inside the Park is filled with old-fashioned gifts and candy and is sure to be one of your most memorable shopping experiences during your visit.
