Urbana Sweetcorn Festival

The first Urbana Sweetcorn Festival was held in August 1975 in the parking lot at Main & Race Streets in downtown Urbana. It was a community event put on by the employees of local business Busey Bank.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.

FESTIVAL FACTS

  • Around 30,000 ears of sweet corn are consumed each year at the festival.
  • We get the corn from a nearby Illinois farm, 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!
