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.

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.

Old Time Post Office, Store, Home & School Exhibit

Gale Center of History & Culture Museum in South Jordan, Utah

School
The school is built to look as if we are ready for a day of learning at the turn of the twentieth century, about 1900. It resembles the one built at approximately 104th S. and 1300 West.

Home
This house is built to look like the home of Byrum Henry Beckstead, one of the first settlers in South Jordan and was built especially for children. In it they (you) have the opportunity to feel what it would have been like to live back in the early days of South Jordan.

Store
There were several stores in early South Jordan. The first large store was the Jordan Mercantile run by Joseph Holt. It was located at 10346 South 1300 West and was built about 1895. It carried a full line of household and farm items. It also housed an office, dance hall and stage. The wonderful building here in the History Center is a combination of two later stores that were important places in the lives of the early settlers starting around 1930.

Post Office
In early days mail delivery was very different from today. Mail to this area of the Salt Lake Valley was delivered once a week to the city of Sandy. One postman, or mail carrier, then delivered mail to the South Jordan, Bennion, West Jordan, Riverton, Draper, Midvale and Crescent cities. Then back to Sandy he went! He carried it all on his back in 2 bags.

Terrific Tuesdays – Monthly at 6 pm
Look no further than the Gale Center of History and Culture on Tuesday evenings for exciting family fun activities! We will have arts & crafts, guest speakers, movies, games, demonstrations etc.
