Located in Volunteer Park

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 are able to share our profit with local not-for-profit organizations.

In 2016, the Corn Boil Committee presented checks to 18 local charities and organizations.  Some of the recipients included the Sugar Grove Public Library,  Sugar Grove Historical Society, Kaneland John Shields Elementary School, Conley Outreach Community Services, Marmion Academy cross country, Kaneland High School athletics and Drum Corps, Between Friends Food Pantry, and Special Olympics.

Helping the community we serve is a vital reason we put on the Corn Boil each and every year. One of the ways we can help our community is by lending our voice to special causes.  This year the Sugar Grove Corn Boil will be partnering with Giant Steps and lending our support to the autism community.  Please visit the Parade and Opening Ceremony page for more information.
