The Sweetcorn Festival would not be possible without the time and dedication of countless volunteers. In past festivals, we’ve had as many as 500 volunteers! This year, things are looking different, but we still want to provide the world’s BEST vegetable to our supportive community at the Urbana Sweetcorn Drive-Thru, on Friday, August 21st, from 2-7 PM in the parking lot of Lincoln Square Mall!

“My family and I have been volunteering for the Sweet Corn Festival for about 8 years now. It’s become a tradition to our family to where we all get together to laugh and work while giving back to the community. The reason I come back to help out is simply I like it; I enjoy the music, the people and fun. It’s very rewarding and you get to meet a lot of different people in and out of the community. Oh not to mention I love corn on the cob…that’s just an added bonus! I look forward to volunteering my services again this year and every year thereafter, it’s already marked on my calendar!”
