The annual Shippensburg Corn Festival is making a comeback this year on Saturday Aug. 28 at the Shippensburg Fairgrounds.
After being canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the single-day event has returned but will look a little different from past celebrations.
“Due to restrictions that have been in place for COVID, the committee has been working diligently to find a solution to meet all restrictions. So as a temporary solution, the Shippensburg Corn Festival will be held at the fairgrounds this year.” the Corn Festival website said.
The fairgrounds are located at 10131 Possum Hollow Road and parking costs $5 per car and the money will benefit the Shippensburg Athletic Associations Booster Clubs and the Festival, according to the website.
The festival, which is known for its wide array of food vendors and craft goods, will feature more than 250 vendors.
Festival favorite foods like roasted corn, barbecue, fried foods, ice cream and of course several corn centric dishes will be sold.
As a community-based festival, the Blue Ridge Thunder Cloggers and Shippensburg University Drum Line are among the musical entertainment, the website said.
“We look forward to the 40th year of the Shippensburg Corn Festival being a successful, fun and entertaining event,” the website said.
