Live music, grilled sweet corn, train rides, corn shucking competitions, games, and more. The Amaizing Sweet Corn Festival celebrates agriculture and supports local efforts to reduce food insecurity.
After the Harvest and the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame are cohosting the second annual festival on Saturday, July 29 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, 630 N. 126th St., Bonner Springs, KS.
This family-friendly festival will feature aromatic grilled sweet corn, live music, plus fresh watermelon, food trucks, carnival games, shucking competitions, arts and crafts, tours of the Museum of Farming, and more.
The event supports a worthy cause to combat food waste and food insecurity.
After the Harvest (ATH) and its volunteer network rescue produce from going to waste and donate it to over 360 agencies that serve hungry people, primarily in Kansas City. Proceeds from the event go to help ATH’s mission.
Leading up to the festival event, ATH has been hosting its Glean-a-Thon, a competition-style harvesting event that engages volunteer groups to harvest its goal of 50,000 ears of corn.
In 2022, the festival helped to feed over 15,000 people who were experiencing food insecurity.
Admission is $20 per carload.
