Where family and friends come together to have fun!
The Sugar Grove Corn Boil will be hosting its annual summer festival July 28-31, 2022. 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.
2022 Festival Status Update
2021 had proven to be challenging for us to have a successful Corn Boil. We faced the challenges of getting sponsors, finding volunteers, coming up with a COVID Safety Plan in addition to obtaining reasonably priced insurance coverage for the Corn Boil. With these challenges, the Sugar Grove Corn Boil, NFP Committee and Volunteers had decided to cancel the 2021 event.
The challenges in 2020 and 2021 had made it impossible to provide a safe and successful event. We will continue to work towards an awesome 2022 Corn Boil event. Much help is needed to make this happen. We ask for help from our Sugar Grove residents, our past patrons, the business community, and nearby communities for suggestions on 2022 efforts for fundraising, donations and, importantly, to volunteer. It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a community to run a quality Corn Boil. Attend a meeting and see how you can help make a difference! Our meetings are held every 3rd Thursday of the Month. More information and updates will also be posted on our Facebook page.

Free parking at the Sugar Grove Corn Boil!
Volunteer Park is located in a neighborhood with parking available on village streets.
Please be courteous to our neighbors, ensuring that vehicles do not block any driveways, and obey all “No Parking” signs. We have to maintain enough space for emergency vehicles to be able to access the area.

Fun for the kids is the large hay wagon shuttle pulled by a tractor which makes a loop continually during the festivities, dropping off and picking up at two park entrances and the Library. Free golf cart shuttles will also be patrolling the streets to get you comfortably to and from the park.

Motorcycles are welcome to park on the concrete sidewalk and around the flagpole in front of John Shields Elementary School located at 85 S. Main Street.
