If you are looking for family-friendly fun this weekend, the Sweet Corn Fiesta is a great place to start! The annual Palm Beach County event will be held Sunday, April 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
Children’s rides and games, a corn shucking contest, corn eating contests (one featuring the International Federation of Competitive Eaters, and the other a local event), and other activities are planned as part of the celebration of delicious Florida sweet corn.
Tickets at the gate are $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-11, and free for children under the age of 6. Visitors can save $1 by purchasing in advance online by Saturday. For more information, check out www.sweetcornfiesta.com or contact the Western Palm Beach County Farm Bureau at 561-996-0343.
Next week we’ll post a sweet corn recipe in honor of the Sweet Corn Fiesta!
