The Urbana Business Association is now responsible for the planning of the festival, over the years adding a local car show, an expanded family area, live music on multiple stages, food, vendors, and beer all in the heart of downtown Urbana.
  • Around 20,000 ears of sweet corn are consumed each year at the festival.
  • We get the corn from a nearby Illinois farm (Maddox Farms), so our corn is fresh, local, and delicious!
  • We use an antique steam engine to cook the corn.
  • The festival promotes green efforts by offering recycling receptacles throughout the festival, and we compost our corncobs!
