35th Annual Sweet Corn Festival

Friday Aug 8, 2014 - Saturday Aug 9, 2014 Downtown

Event starts with the annual shucking of over 7 tons of sweet corn on Friday night. Join us from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at 10th & Prairie for this great community tradition! Saturday's festivities start with the Sweet Corn Festival 5k at 8 a.m. Visit adelsweetcorn5k.com for more information and to register. Adel's annual parade kicks off the Sweet Corn Festival each year and thousands of visitors line up along Main Street to watch Dallas County's largest parade.

After the parade, be sure to get in line for Adel's famous Deardorff sweet corn. Each year Adel Partners purchases approximately 15,000 ears of this delicious corn and gives it away for FREE at the festival. The cooking process is something to see as well. Corn is gone by mid-afternoon, so plan to come early!

There is a car show, children's inflatables, a variety of art, craft, and food vendors and live entertainment throughout the day. As day turns to night, join us in the beer garden for Gimmik and Big Show Dueling Pianos. It is sure to be a show you don't want to miss!
