August 17-18, 2013 32nd Annual Fairborn Sweet Corn Festival – Fairborn, Ohio

 

The Fairborn Sweet Corn Festival features handmade arts and crafts. This is a family oriented alcohol-free event featuring children’s activities with free entertainment, parking, and activities. Many local and regional artisans offering handmade arts and crafts, and of course, Sweet Corn!

 

In 1982, the first Sweet Corn Festival was held at the Fairborn Lion Den Park in Rona Hills. The following year, the festival was moved to the grounds of Central Jr. High School. In all subsequent years, the festival has been held at Community Park. The festival continued to grow, from only 40 booths with an attendance of a few thousand people to approximately 180 booths with an attendance of over 45,000 people today.

Many traditions of the festival were started the first year. They began with the ribbon cutting by the King and Queen of the festival, which signals the beginning of the festival, and continued with the corn-eating contest, the AVA Volksmarch, free entertainment, numerous arts and crafts booths, food booths, and the famous steam cooked sweet corn.

The children can look forward to pony rides, train rides, and the Big Bounce. Everyone can enjoy the 1840’s Pioneer Village with candle making, silversmithing, blacksmithing, stockades and black powder gun demonstrations.

Through the hard work, dedication, and determination of many volunteers and workers, the Sweet Corn Festival is one of the major festivals in Southwest Ohio.
