“We are both thrilled and humbled to be selected among the hundreds of contenders for the top corn mazes in the country,” said Catherine Garrison Davis, Co-Owner of Denver Downs. “We chose the theme this year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of John Deere tractors, creating an enormous 10-acre landscape of the iconic tractor. It’s a challenging and fun activity for all the families and groups that visit the farm and we hope many more will come to see the award-winning maze this fall.”

Denver Downs, a family owned and operated farm since 1869, competed with the best of the best corn mazes all over the nation. It is the only corn maze selected in South Carolina and one of just two corn mazes from the entire Southeast.

“If you want to check off a corn maze on your fall bucket list, this is the one to do,” said Ron Smith, Corn Maze Operations Manager at Denver Downs. “We strive each year to provide more fun and even more memorable experiences for our guests at the farm - next year we are hoping to be at the top of this list of best corn mazes in the country.”

This accolade is not Denver Downs’ first award. Their pumpkin patch has ranked the best one in South Carolina by both Reader's Digest, Good Housekeeping and Southern Living Magazine.

In addition to 10-acre corn maze, 35 fun barnyard activities, live music, and the Harvest of Horrors, Denver Downs will have over 25 tons of pumpkins this season.
