For over 30 years, the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival is one of the nation’s premier storytelling events! Attendees from around the world come to hear stories from unforgettable performers in an enchanted setting—the Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point.
1st Week of September
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.
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.

ComedySportz, the longest running comedy show in Utah Valley offers a unique blend of fast and funny improvisational comedy that is appropriate fun for all ages.
The Red and Blue teams battle it out in front of an audience, playing and challenging each other to games. The referee awards points to the teams based on audience favor. The eternal battle of Red vs. Blue is completely improvised, and the show is never the same twice!
ComedySportz is a hilarious audience interactive-comedy competition between two teams of comedians, who perform a series of scenes and songs, all based on suggestions from YOU, the audience!
FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS (7:30 & 9:30 PM)
First held in 1966 at the request of Srila Prabhupada (founder of the Hare Krishna Movement), the Sunday Love Feast has evolved as an integrated celebration of Lord Krishna’s pastimes: chanting, hearing spiritual knowledge, dancing, eating, fellowship and generally sharing the bliss of God’s presence.
A Sunday Love Feast is now held in nearly 400 temples worldwide. Anyone can come regardless of beliefs as we welcome all into an experience of Love.
In the Bhagavad-gita – one of the world’s oldest spiritual texts – it is said : “This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of spirituality. It is ever increasingly blissful, and joyfully performed.”
As we gather, we are led in universal prayers to the temple deities, then hear a talk with power point on spiritual philosophy by Caru Das, Temple President, or a guest lecturer. What follows is an ecstatic call-and-response chant to Krishna and Rama, which may spontaneously include blissful dancing to the chant. After closing prayers, we continue downstairs for a delicious Indian-style feast and conversation.
Come join us every Sunday for the Love Feast. No one leaves hungry for a taste of the Divine! Dress is casual but nice. $3 donation is suggested.
