Where family and friends come together to have fun!
The Sugar Grove Corn Boil will be hosting its annual summer festival July 25-28, 2019. Our mission is to promote a sense of community, provide local civic and charitable groups with fundraising opportunities, as well as, offer affordable family fun, with our tasty sweet corn as one of the main attractions.
For over fifty years, the Corn Boil festival has been widely attended by not just the residents of Sugar Grove, but by those in the surrounding communities, and even some from a far. Each year the all-volunteer committee is committed to providing the best festival around.
Together We Can Make A Difference
Every year the Sugar Grove Corn Boil helps to shine a light on a cause that is important to our community. This year our focus is truly on our community and the not-for-profit organizations that offer guidance and support for members of our community.
In an effort to raise awareness, educate, and provide a fundraising opportunity, we are offering free booth space to these organizations! In addition we will be highlighting these groups throughout the festival.
During the festival, you will be encouraged to visit our community area and help support these outstanding groups that are making a difference! Because Together We Can Make A Difference!
If you are a not-for-profit organization and would like to get involved, please fill out this application and mail it to P O Box 225 Sugar Grove IL 60554.
