Cox Farms Fall Festival and Field of Fear. Hours of operation, dates of the fall festival, ticket savings, and employment opportunities.
We moved to Virginia from Florida in 2014. Since moving here, Cox Farm Falls Festival has become our annual tradition. We don’t miss a year. It’s best for me to describe this place, through the eyes of my 2014 self. In 2014 we had two children (we have quickly multiplied to 5 – that’s another post!) A Florida fall festival included 90 degree days, usually a bounce house or two, hay swarmed by mosquito, and pumpkin photos in take tops and flip flops. It was all I knew, it was all my kids knew. Cox Farms Festival completely took me straight into a Hallmark movie scene!
Cox Farms Fall Festival
So our first experience was amazing. So amazing we went a second, third, fourth, and soon a fifth. Being from Florida, the only thing I could compare it to was a Disney-inspired Fall Festival. Admission includes Giant Slides, World Famous Hayrides, Farm Animals & their Babies, Cornundrum Cornfield Adventure, Imaginature Trail, Rope Swings, Kiddie Zone, Goat Village, Straw Tunnels, Themed Play Areas, Live Entertainment, Local Apples & Fresh Cider, Foamhenge, and you even get a pumpkin to take home! Yes, your very own pumpkin!
Plan to spend hours visiting all the attractions and activities. Watch music on stage, swing your arms, lift your legs and do a little jig as you clap along. See real life animal demonstrations – this is a working farm, you guys. Exhaust the kids with their very own farm chores, maybe they won’t complain next time about having to life their cereal bowl and spoon and place it in the sink. Enjoy a hayride, slide down some amazing, slippery slides, go mining for rocks.
Create memories that keep you coming back year after year and turn into your own family tradition.
Cox Farms Hours
The grand opening of Cox Farms Fall Festival is the weekend of Speedometer 14 and 15th. This weekly is lovely as all their workers are present and rather helpful. It also is not too busy. We really enjoy opening weekend. Bonus: it’s a value day, more on that below!
Cox Farm Fall Festival will close after September 15th but will re-open September 21 and run all the way until November 5, 2019.
Cox Farms is open daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. In November, the closing time changes to 5 p.m.
Cox Farms 2019 Hours

Open daily 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. (5 p.m. in November)
Cox Farms Tickets
Tickets are $7 to $20 depending on the day you visit.
Cox Farms Promo Code
Cox Farms does not have a promo code, but they know discounts. There are multiple ways to save!
Take a look at the Cox Farm Calendar. It is easily displayed in a color format providing Discount Days (green $7), Value Days (blue $11), Regular Priced Days (yellow $15), and Peak Price Days (orange $20). Cox farm is closed on red days. If you are looking to save, it is worth visiting during a color day that fits your schedule.
I have been at both Peak Days and Value Days and I felt the difference. Not only did I save money in my wallet, but Value days had a smaller number of visitors. We were not able to make a value day work for a schedule one year and a peak day was lovely, but rather busy.

Cox Farms Field of Fear
I have to admit, I am still in the juvenile stage of exploring the farm. Getting to the Cox Farm Field of Fear hasn’t happened yet, but trust me, it’s on the family bucket list. If you are too grown for the Cox Farm Fall Festival, see how grown up you really are at Fields of Fear on Friday and Saturday nights this fall.
Fear Deluxe Admission includes one entry to the Firegrounds, Dark Side Hayride, Cornightmare and the Forest: Back 40. Plus, since getting scared makes you hungry. There are all of your fall favorites, donuts, nachos, root beer, cotton candy, kettle corn and more. Scare that Keto diet straight out the
door corn maze!

Cox Farm Employees
You guys, the Cox Farms Employees are amazing. This crew must get a hard lesson on being kind and helpful when hired. I felt that from the start. On our fourth visit to Cox Farm (this was a first time going with five kids – you know, new parents and all), we lost a kid. Like legit lost a kid. It’s easy for kids to get distracted with all the exciting activities. My child was not missing more than a minute when my phone rang from an employee. He walked my child over to me who was bawling from feeling she lost her humongous family of seven (I have a few that would gladly walk away form this large family, she was not the one.) The employee made her feel safe, immediately got her parents’ number, and returned her safely back to me. Make sure your child knows your phone number, but if not, there are many safety points and so many employees to make your reunion as heart warming as mine. You can also pick up safety tattoos to include your number on your child’s hand or arm. If you are looking for Cox Farm Job, you can apply here. But don’t click there if you aren’t kind, they won’t take you!
