Good Company: Sever’s Fall Festival

It’s a family tradition for folks all over the Twin Cities. Sever’s is synonymous with good old fashion family fun. For twenty years, it has been a destination. Today, it’s so much more than just a corn maze. There’s food, games, two massive corn pits, pumpkins and more. 
 
It was in 1890 when Sever Peterson’s family farm was settled. It’s still in operation by the family. It’s the fourth generation. The corn maze came about in 1997 when Sever and Sharon Peterson were hosting a foreign exchange student from England. The student told them about mazes in gardens. The rest is history. 
 
Every year the corn maze has a new theme. This year, it celebrate the big anniversary. The family sits down over the winter to come up with the next year’s theme. Rows or corn are hoed by hand to make the maze just right. 
 
Sever’s Fall Festival is open Fridays 1-8 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and Sundays 10 a.m.-6 p.m. until October 30th.
