Sever's Fall Festival ready for the first year in its new location

The popular harvest festival has shifted a few miles down the road.

Sever's Fall Festival opens for the season on Friday, promising to be "bigger and better" than ever after moving to its new location.

It will be the 23rd year for the harvest celebration, but the first at its new home 3121 W. 150th St. in Shakopee, just off of Hwy. 169 and not far from the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.

The Peterson family, which first launched the festival in 1997, has announced that it's bought the land on West 150th Street, making the new location its "forever home."

The move from its previous home outside Canterbury Park racetrack will allow the festival to expand, using the extra space to once again make its corn maze the largest in the state.

New attractions this year include an expanded petting zoo and animal display courtesy of Safari North Wildlife Park, which will include a giraffe, a nilgai, water buffalo, wildebeest, camels, kangaroos, and much more.

This year's corn maze theme too will be "Jurassic Adventure," a hark back to its very first event, when the design of the maze was a Tyrannosaurus Rex. 

Other returning attractions include its popular corn pit – with the addition of an "extreme" corn pit, the giant jumping pillows, zip lines, straw bale maze, pony rides, the giant slide, and pumpkin blasters.

There will be multiple food and drink vendors on hand, while visitors can also pick up their own pumpkins and freshly-picked apples.

The Sever's Fall Festival runs from Sept. 13-Nov. 3, between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Fridays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are available online or at the gate, with general admission costing $17, groups/seniors/military $14, and kids aged 3 and under free.
