Celebrating the 200th anniversary of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, this year’s annual Headless Horseman festival will be one for the history books.
Safety, Our Top Priority
This year, safety matters more than ever, and Conner Prairie has taken significant steps to make it safe for families to participate in their favorite fall activities. Our expansive grounds, large support staff, and long tradition of hosting outdoor festivals uniquely qualifies us to create a safe environment to carry on our most beloved traditions. We will be abiding by all CDC recommendations, including the wearing of masks by staff and guests. For a full list of our safety precautions, please visit our website connerprairie.org/reopen.
Behold! The Legend!
Go in search of the Headless Horseman aboard our tractor-pulled, haunted hay rides. Come face-to-face with the Legend as he chases guests through the prairie grounds. This year, everyone’s favorite Headless tradition is more convenient than ever with online reservations allowing you to schedule your adventure at a specific time of your choosing. Special precautions have been made to ensure safety and comfort for all guests.
Corn Maze Mania
Last year USA Today named Conner Prarie’s corn maze one of the top 10 best in the country, and it’s only gotten better with this year’s tribute to the 200th anniversary of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. As the inspiration for our annual Headless Horseman festival (which celebrates it’s 37th anniversary this year), we’ll be commemorating the classic tale with a one-of-a-kind custom maze design depicting the Headless Horseman rearing up on his steed from an open book.
The 690,000-square foot maze features three unique adventure paths to appeal to guests of all ages:
- Puzzle Maze: Test your wits in our family-friendly puzzle maze
- Kids’ Maze: Bring the little ones along on our shorter kids’ maze
- Haunted Maze: Brave the spooky Haunted Maze after dark
Be sure to ride the 1859 Balloon Voyage for a birdseye view and keep your eyes peeled for the Headless Horseman roaming the haunted grounds.
Our reimagined midway games and attractions offer plenty to get excited about. Fly down our tubing hill for a spooky thrill. Discover what the future holds with readings from our fortune teller. Play classical games and take the little ones for a spin on our beloved barrel train. And enjoy a tasty seasonal treat from our food vendors.
