50th Anniversary (1967-2017)
July 27th, 28th, 29th, & 30th

…where friends and family come together to have fun!

Calling All Volunteers!!!

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Sugar Grove Corn Boil.  Helping the community we serve is a vital reason we put on the Corn Boil each and every year.   As the festival has grown from a community gathering in 1967, to a four-day festival in 2017, so has the preparation.  The Sugar Grove Corn Boil is organized and carried out by volunteers comprised of local businesses, community leaders, and community members.  Many of our volunteers have been with us many years and the experience they bring to the table ensures that we put on a terrific event year after year.  We are always looking for new perspectives and ideas to make this event the best we can.

Here’s your chance to be a part of history!

We are in need of volunteers, both as committee heads, committee members, and volunteers while the festival is going on. Our current committee heads bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to each specific committee they serve.  They are eager to mentor, share, guide, and teach new volunteers.  The following committee chairpersons are open: Facilities, Website, and Sponsorship.  If you are not ready to spearhead a specific committee that’s okay, we still need you!  Where ever your expertise lies, any and all help is needed!

The Sugar Grove Corn Boil NFP meets on the third Thursday of the month.  We start at 6:30 p.m. and meet in the Sugar Grove Township Building on the corner of Main and Snow St. in the original downtown of Sugar Grove.

The Sugar Grove Corn Boil is made possible by Volunteers


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.
