“We loved being vendors at the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival! Last year was our first year in business and our first year to participate in the festival. Since we were new vendors we weren’t exactly sure what to expect, but we soon realized that this is a superbly run event from the beginning to the end. The staff was extremely helpful and easily available during the festival. We loved the location we were assigned during the festival and our customers were really excited to see us there. It was an enjoyable experience and we can’t wait to participate again this year!”
