The festival is a homecoming of sorts and takes place September 22-26, 2021. This year's theme is "Corn Festival -It's good to be back!"
The event celebrates the rich agricultural history in Grundy County and offers everything from a farm...fair, craft shows, carnival, music and food, food, food. The town is decorated beautifully to celebrate the fall harvest and everyone joins in the spirit by dressing in their best jeans and flannels. On Sunday afternoon, enjoy one of the state's best and largest parades featuring floats, bands, equestrian units, Shriners, and so much more. Corn Festival - once you've been to it - you'll always want to come back.
