The 50th Annual Eden Corn Festival is August 1-4, 2013.  This popular event celebrates the huge bounty of fresh juicy corn on the cob produced by Western New York farmers.

Parades, a carnival midway, a full list of live entertainment and (of course) a corn on the cob eating contest are the hallmarks of this now half-century tradition in Erie County (kids love the corn husking competition).  A large craft show, old car show and the crowning of the festival’s King and Queen are always popular events here.


What:  Eden Corn Festival

Where:  Eden, NY (Erie County)

When:  August 1-4, 2013
