Description:

From 31st annual Corn Festival Website:

The Avon Rotary Corn Festival is our clubs largest annual fundraiser, which has truly emerged as a major community event. When the club first began planning a community festival in 1986, we chose to celebrate corn because of its impact on our region. Corn has been a staple of our agricultural heritage ever since the days Native Americans grew corn here as one of the three sisters, including beans and squash.

The Festival, held every year on the second Saturday in August, draws thousands of people from our region to see friends, browse arts and crafts, listen to a wide range of music on three separate stages, play games, eat lots of food, participate in our annual corn eating contest and enjoy the day. In 2015, nearly 150 craft vendors and about 25 food vendors participated in our Festival. The Festival culminates in a large outdoor concert by a popular party band from 7:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Many food vendors continue to serve concert attendees throughout the evening.

Proceeds from the Festival are used to support many local, state, national and international service organizations and causes, including the Boy Scouts, Avon Rotary-Lions Ambulance Service, Avon Food Pantry, Teresa House, literacy programs, Rotary International Youth Exchange students, and the Rotary Foundation. The Avon Rotary Club would like to thank our sponsors, advertisers, vendors, and volunteers. Without your participation and support, the Festival would not be possible.

The Festival has handicapped parking available, as well as regular shuttle service from the main parking area, which is located only minutes from the Festival site at the Avon High School.

Pets are not permitted at the Festival. Please leave them at home.
