The 39th annual Shippensburg Corn Festival filled King Street with thousands of people on the last Saturday in August.
More than 200 craft vendors presented their jewelry, gifts, home décor, soaps, baked goods and more for craft show enthusiasts.
For those not searching for the perfect home décor, there was a variety of food vendors and entertainers who filled downtown, participating in the celebration of Shippensburg’s largest crop: corn.
The community-based festival featured musical and dance performances including members of the Shippensburg University Marching Band, Blue Ridge Thunder Cloggers and The MidLife Cowboys.
The fan-favorite corn eating contest also returned, crowning a new champion.
This year’s festival was held from 8 a.m.–4 p.m. The festival is always held the last Saturday in August and will return next year on August 29, 2020.
