This is a place of fertile soil, traditional values and simple pleasure. In Dyersville, Iowa the century-old family farm with its quaint, and oh so recognizable house, baseball still ranks as a favorite pastime for all ages. What better place to carve a baseball diamond from a corn field and make a movie about pursuing one’s dream, no matter how much effort it takes?

and... what better place to hold a summertime festival with two American Cornhole Tournaments?

The Field of Dreams, released in 1989, is a movie that has inspired millions and became an Academy Award nominee for “Best Picture of the Year.” Welcome to this home, this farm, this baseball field, this little piece of heaven on earth. Welcome to this place where reality mixes with fantasy and dreams can come true.

Three Day Festival with Cornhole, Tailgating and Live Music!
