The Fall Festival
We are excited to share our family farm with our guest as we celebrate our 8th season of the Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival and 123 years of family farming. The 2020 season begins on September 18th and continues weekends only through October 25th. Come enjoy our American Heroes themed corn maze and festival festivities as we make tribute to everyday heroes! We hope that you will join us to experience farm life while creating your own family memories.
Plan Ahead for your visit-
In accordance with local orders, the Fall Festival will be operating at 50% capacity due to Covid 19 pandemic.
Guests may experience entrance delays around peak times once the Fall Festival has reached its maximum capacity.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.
The Kuehnert Dairy Family is making significant efforts to ensure a reasonably safe environment; however, the safety of staff, volunteers and guests cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of the pandemic.
Visitors who are 65 years of age or older or individuals who are medically vulnerable to COVID-19 should ensure they take measures to be safe and not subject themselves to the risks this virus could pose.
By visiting the Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
To help keep everyone safe, Kuehnert Dairy asks all guests to respect the 6-foot social distancing guidelines, follow personal hygiene practices, and stay home if not feeling well.
In accordance with Governor Holcomb’s latest executive orders, guests 8 years and older are required to wear face coverings when entering the Fall Festival, when waiting in lines where 6-foot social distancing may not be feasible and to ride the hayride attraction. Please plan ahead.
Please enjoy and stay safe!
