Corn Maze At a Glance
eliada’s annual Corn maze is a 12 acre maze with over 4 miles
of trails. Located on eliada’s 320 acre campus, just 5 minutes
from downtown asheville, our maze is the largest corn maze
in Western north Carolina. in addition to the corn maze, we
offer attractions like corn cannons, a hayride, corn box, giant
slides and much more!
Over 25,000 people came to get lost in the maze in 2014, and
the asheville Citizen times has called eliada’s Corn Maze “one
of the fasted growing events in WnC.”
Eliada’s corn maze is the only non-profit maze in WNC,
with 100% of our proceeds benefiting children and families
served by Eliada. Over $175,000 was raised in 2014. We could
not do this without our dedicated sponsors. Please be a
part of our success in 2015.
in addition to over $7,300 in paid advertising, eliada’s Corn
Maze was featured in various local media outlets including the
asheville Citizen-times, the Mountain Xpress, and the Laurel
Magazine, and received excellent media sponsorships from
area tV and radio stations.
Sponsors benefit from a comprehensive, regional marketing
plan designed to draw maze attendees from across Western
north Carolina and upstate South Carolina, including
billboards, print ads, social media campaigns, television and
radio coverage, print marketing and more.
The Corn Maze runs from September 16 to October 31, with
the main marketing push beginning in early August. This gives
businesses up to 12 full weeks of exposure with this event!
The Asheville Citizen-Times has
called Eliada’s Annual Corn Maze
“one of the fastest growing
events in WNC”.
