Come celebrate with us on Saturday, July 25, 2020 for First Responders Appreciation Day. Go the distance and help us show our appreciation for our Nation’s first responders the only way we know-how – through the power of family, fun and baseball! Gates open at noon, and be sure to bring your lawn chairs and sunscreen for a day of fun! The Field of Dreams Movie Site is proud to hold this fundraiser event benefiting the Dubuque County Emergency Responder Training Facility, Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, and the New York Police Department Widows and Children’s Fund.
The Field of Dreams farm house will be rented by overnight guests this evening!
Is this heaven? No, it’s Iowa. A place of fertile soil, traditional values and simple pleasures — the century-old Lansing family farm in Dyersville, Iowa was the perfect location to carve a baseball diamond from a cornfield and to make a much-beloved film about pursuing one’s dream, no matter what. The Field of Dreams Movie Site©, as it’s better known, is a moment in time, a set in cinematic history, a place where reality mixes with fantasy.
People from all over the world come to see where the Kinsella family’s story unfolded in the 1989 classic and for the first time since the movie’s release, fans can now spend the night in the farmhouse’s one bedroom upstairs and enjoy the “Kinsella Experience.” Guests will be greeted personally by the Movie Site staff and will receive a gift basket complete with:
Field of Dreams Movie Site Rawlings Baseball, a bottle of wine, two picnic wine glasses and a picnic tablecloth to enjoy in centerfield just like Ray and Annie do in the movie, a DVD of “Field of Dreams” with two red and white striped boxes of popcorn to enjoy in the same nook where Karin, Ray and Annie’s daughter, is watching a ballgame and asks her dad “What’s a southpaw?” and the delightful book by Actor Dwier Brown, If You Build It, who plays John Kinsella, Ray’s dad, in the movie, that shares Dwier’s tales of being “America’s Dad” after his tear-inducing lines at the end of the movie.
Guests will also receive a $25 gift card to put toward a sumptuous country breakfast at one of Dyersville’s family restaurants or a quick bite and cup of coffee at the local brewhouse on Main Street. The Field of Dreams Movie Site© exudes everything that is wonderful — the relaxed pace, the pastoral setting, the rich history.
Welcome to this home, this farm, this baseball field, this little piece of heaven on earth.
