A fun-filled day at Rockin’ K Farms makes for a memorable and educational trip out to the country with the whole family. As the fall season officially kicks off, this festive attraction opens its doors this Saturday, September 24.
Rockin’ K’s story starts with Jeff and Traci Klepac, who opened Klepac Farms in 1981. Jeff himself is a third-generation farmer, as his grandfather grew up farming in the 1900s. In 2006, the Klepac sons, Wade and Brandon, joined the business to continue family traditions.
Growing up in the Coastal Bend, the Klepacs envisioned a place for families to go and enjoy wholesome outdoor fun. With the help of Traci’s daughter-in-laws Rachelle and Kourtni, the lingering idea for a corn maze was brought to life in 2014, making it the first woman-owned maze in Texas. The family created a seasonal corn maze with more than just challenging twists and turns to attract all ages. Over the years, Rockin’ K Farms has evolved from a single maze into a full-on fall festival for Coastal Bend families to enjoy.
The annual Fall Festival runs from September 24 through November 6. A new maze design is created each year, which serves as an exciting surprise. Folks can also enjoy plenty of photo opportunities throughout the farm, a giant pumpkin patch and pumpkin house, farm animals, backyard games such as tug o’ war, corn hole, an apple blaster and pumpkin bowling. You can even hop aboard the Cow Train for a ride around the farm. This year the festival includes the “Big Tex,” a new giant slide. There’s no shortage of fun to be had at Rockin’ K Farms.
Delicious food and drink offerings are also available at the farm. Sweet Bin serves up festival classics such as lemonade and kettle corn. Kountry Kitchen, The Smokin’ Silo, Texas Treats and Kountry Road Scoop are also on-site to provide tasty bites. Plus, adults can find alcoholic beverages at Turnrow Cantina.
The Fall Festival is open every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the farm gates. General admission starts at $16.95 and includes access to the sunflower fields, corn maze, pumpkin patch and over 20 attractions and photo ops. The Super Pass starts at $24.95 and includes the same perks as general admission, plus two tokens good for eight apples for the apple blaster or 25 shots for paintball. Children ages 2 and under are admitted for free.
Rockin’ K Farms is a welcoming fall festival that is great for the family to enjoy and make memories that will last a lifetime. Visit the farm’s website for more details or to purchase tickets.
