Countdown until the
77th Annual Mendota Sweet Corn Festival
Tons of free, hot, buttered, delicious sweet corn will be the highlight of the 77th annual Sweet Corn Festival to be held in Mendota, Illinois on August 8-11, 2024

The Mendota Area Chamber of Commerce is preparing for the gigantic undertaking of hosting over 30,000 visitors, who consume over 50 tons of sweet corn during the festival weekend.

Don't miss the excitement for the festival offers a variety of entertainment events for the entire family. The events take place primarily in the downtown area, and with the exception of the beer garden, have no admission fees or parking fees.

Free musical entertainment is in abundance. The Crafters Market Place and flea market features over 200 dealers in hand made crafts and unique merchandise. There is a Queen Pageant, beer garden with live bands, grand parade and a brand new carnival with more rides and games for both adults and children, plus much more.

The midways are lined with food booths, featuring a multitude of ethnic, regional and festival foods, but the "BIG EVENT" is the serving of the free Sweet Corn on Sunday afternoon. For over 70 years, it has been cooked to its golden goodness with the help of a vintage steam engine.

The good times are waiting, the welcome mat is out, come to Mendota for one of the Midwest's oldest and largest harvest festivals, the 77th annual Sweet Corn Festival.
