The 2019 Hoopeston National Sweet Corn Festival will be held August 29 – September 2, 2019.
Detailed festival information will be coming soon! With the coming of Labor Day weekend, Hoopeston prepares to welcome the thousands of visitors expected to converge upon the Sweetcorn Capitol to witness the annual National Sweetcorn Festival.
The Hoopeston Sweetcorn Festival is unique in that, besides the normal carnival, demolition derby, Grand Parade and other events, they cook approximately 50 tons of sweetcorn with an antique steam engine and distribute the corn FREE. All events take place at the McFerren Park, located at west Penn Street and IL Route 1.
