…where friends and family come together to have fun!



Thank you!

As we look back at this years Corn Boil, the committee would like to thank our festival goers, sponsors, volunteers, and most of all our committee heads and board members.  There are so many things that go into putting a festival like ours together.  “I am extremely proud of the ideas our committee had and how we brought those to fruition,” said Jackie Link Corn Boil President.  Now we look to the future.  As we look to continue to evolve, we would like to hear from you!  Please join us at our November 16th meeting.  We are eager to hear what you have to say!

Supporting Our Community
Autism Awareness

While the month of April may be Autism Awareness month, the Sugar Grove Corn Boil lit it up blue for the four-day festival  As many of you know, a vital reason the Corn Boil is put on year after year is to help the community they serve, lending our voice to special causes that affect the community. On July 31st, we received the below email and wanted to share.  Thank you Alice, this touches our hearts, thank you so much for allowing us to share:

“Hello!  I am sending a few photos from Saturday.  My husband Don and daughter Taylor are in the one photo.  Taylor attends Canopy Day Program in Sugar Grove.  It was touching how warm and welcoming your community is!  From the young men who told us where to park to the cotton candy concession worker who made sure my daughter got a bag of all “pink” cotton candy we felt we belonged.  I looked to find a committee person to speak to but we weren’t able to find one in the time we were there.  I know everyone was extremely busy.  Our  daughter Taylor has Autism and is nonverbal.  That is an assistive tech device for speech output she has around her neck.  The other photo is of the Giant Steps tent.  Sorry I don’t know the names of those she is with in photo. 

I kept thinking of asking people to pinch me as it was unusual to have a whole town support Autism.  From the  blue light bulbs showing awareness, to money raised from carnival ride wristbands and special light up wristbands it was wonderful!  We were able to stay over an hour and had a lovely time as a family.  Please thank the committee for us.”

Sugar Grove speaks, let’s continue to bring understanding, awareness,
and acceptance to our community and surrounding areas.

Our Mission is to give back to the community!

Hosted by the Sugar Grove Corn Boil, NFP volunteers, the corn boil provides local groups and vendors an opportunity to raise funds via the large audience.  In addition,  after our annual event is done and our books are balanced,  we would like to share in any profits with local not-for-profit organizations.
