    • John Ross Hamant, 1949 – 2017: An Appreciation
      It is with heavy hearts that we note the passing of longtime Colonial Williamsburg Foundation employee and veteran character interpreter, John Hamant.  Mr. Hamant, a Baltimore native, earned a bachelor’s degree in theater production and a master’s degree in acting and directing from the University of Arizona, but it was his love of archaeology that first...R […]
    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]
    • THE WORD ON DOG STREET: REVERSING ATTENDANCE TRENDS
      The word on DoG Street is that the program changes at Colonial Williamsburg over the past few years have led to a decline in attendance. In fact, just the opposite is true. In 2014, after President Mitchell Reiss and his new team brought innovative program changes to CW, attendance rose after a seven-year decline. For...Read More »
    • An Open Letter to the Colonial Williamsburg Community
      The role of Williamsburg in America’s founding is nothing short of extraordinary.

Who would have thought getting lost could be so much fun?

charles city corn Maze renwood fields Are you looking for a fun fall family activity ? Then check out the corn maze in  at Renwood Fields farm, located on the James River in beautiful Charles City County, Virginia, just a short drive from Williamsburg or Richmond.

After the corn is harvested most farmers normally plow down their corn stalks. A few sell them for fall decorations. The ingenuity of  Renwood Fields Farms  is a marvel.  Their corn stalks have become a giant maze.  Corn mazes offer families an opportunity to wend their way through intricately designed fields.

Renwood Field Farm’s Maze is no amateur effort. It stretches over multiple acres. Like to get lost in a puzzle and find your way out? That’s what this maze is all about. No need to worry though if you get lost within there is a large tower which oversees the field. Lost maze walkers need only find a telestalk ( home made intercom) to talk to a cast member and get a clue for the maze .Before you enter the maze, you’ll receive a game-board and a flag. As you find your way through the maze you collect map pieces to complete your map of the maze. In the end you will meet the host on the Victory Bridge at the end of the maze. There you will clock yourself out so that you know what time you finished.

At first, the maze looks like it would be easy to get in and out of, but that is deceptive. Even with a map, and clues along the way, most people wind up going around in circles. ( we did ) The adults take the longest to find their way out. Kids of 8 or older have been seen darting quickly through the twists and turns not fooled by dead ends. We noticed a few lost adults being led out by grinning children.
For a real challenge go on one of their special Moonlight Mazes !   Remember to bring your own flashlights! They are open on Saturdays from 10am till dusk thru Oct 10th. See the schedule at left for hours of operation
