Celebrating more than 30 years and $125 million raised for local kids!
Dairy Queen® loves kids. Whether its kids’ sports teams celebrating at our restaurants after games, children enjoying dinner with their parents or teenagers visiting for cool treats at the end of a date, DQ® and kids go hand in hand. And if these cherished youngsters ever become sick or injured, we want to help assure they have the best medical care available. That’s why the DQ system has been a proud national partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) since 1984.
The founders of the Dairy Queen® system were men and women who introduced a new kind of dessert treat and, in the process, developed the foundation of the franchising industry. The history of the DQ® system is a story of a unique product that created an industry. Visit DQ online.

Can you tell me how to get to the Sesame Street Sunflower Maze?
Come and play. Everything’s A-OK.
Come get lost in Lyman Orchard’s sunflower maze! While wandering you can learn more about the history of Big Bird, Elmo, Ernie & Bert, Oscar the Grouch, and more. The words to the Sesame Street opening jingle apply to the Sunflower Maze. Sunny Day. Sweepin’ the clouds away. On my way to where the air is sweet. And with more than 350,000 red and yellow sunflowers immersing guests in a 360-degree environment, it’s a wonderful experience for children and adults alike. Get lost in this 2.5-acre maze as yellow finches and beautiful butterflies fly around.
Open Daily 9:00 am – 5:00 pm from August 3 through August 25.
$1 of each admission is donated to in support of pediatric cancer patients at Connecticut Children’s. Over the past 12 years, supporters of the maze have helped Lyman Orchards contribute $107,092 to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Connecticut Children’s.
