A-Maze-ing Day

This signature event is back in 2014 for ONE DAY only on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27th.



For many, fall in Wisconsin is a favorite with autumn foliage, backyard fire pits and the return of football.

This popular spot is also a big favorite. The Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin has held a fundraiser on this farm for a decade, and after two years off, we are back to celebrate the season with the generous support of the Treinen Family.

A-Maze-ing Days have been just that…amazing…with the gorgeous backdrop of Treinen Farm near Lodi.  Huge crowds always come to do fun, family activities like a hayride into the pumpkin patch, farm animal exhibits, ag educational displays, the popular pumpkin slingshot and of course, the incredible corn maze billed as Wisconsin’s largest.

In past years, volunteers from the Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin, along with friends, family members and a few UW students helped over the two day period at various areas.  The greeting tent offered free lemonade, hot chocolate, coffee and ice cream with accepted donations.  The lunch tent stayed incredibly busy by selling hot dogs or brats right off the grill and more recently it became fresh sub sandwiches.  An art tent gave kids a chance to “express” themselves and the big bouncy gave little ones a chance to burn off any remaining energy.  Many stayed for a Saturday night bonfire with smores.  The raffle tent was a flurry of activity with over 2 dozen small and large prizes given away as the curtain dropped before Sunday’s sunset.
