Opening on September 2nd, 2017, The Thamesville Maize hopes to stump maze-goers once again this year with a new design which highlights Canada's 150th. The Thamesville labyrinth will once again challenge maze-goers to "Get Lost" when it opens in time for Labour Day weekend, 2017.

The Dieleman family is proud to be partnered with Case IH Agriculture (Kucura) as well as Precision Planting, who planted the 2017 Canada celebration maze using computer technology, the first of its kind in North America. The maze features Case IH Agriculture above a tribute to Canada celebrating 150 years.

The Dieleman family gives people an opportunity to have total fun on the farm with a 13 acre cornfield and large farm yard to play and discover. The Thamesville Maize will give visitors the chance to "Get Lost" from September 2 through October 29.

Open to the public: Saturday 10 am to 9 pm; Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm; Labour Day 10 am to 5 pm.  After Labour Day the maze will be open Mondays through Thursdays by group reservation only: Fridays 5 pm to 9 pm; Saturdays 10 am to 9 pm; Sundays 1 pm to 5 pm; holidays 10 am to 5 pm. Field trip hours, during weekdays, are available by reservation.

The Thamesville Maize is located just west of Thamesville at 12768 Longwoods Road (Hwy 2). For more information or to make a reservation, call 519-692-5451 or visit
