Saying Sweet Corn and Palm Beach County, Florida in the same breath might make you do a double take. The 6th Annual Sweet Corn Fiesta at the South Florida Fairgrounds this Sunday, April 29 from 11AM to 5PM will show you why Sweet Corn is a big part of Palm Beach County, Florida.
I would never have known that there are over 27,000 acres of Palm Beach County, Florida under cultivation for Sweet Corn! The Florida climate ensures year round growing... and the extra sun helps create an ultra sweet crop!
Actually... few counties in the country - even in Iowa - farm 1/2 that many acres!
Join in the fun of Corn Eating at the Adult International Corn Eating Contest to be crowned this year's Corn King! or you could let your kids compete in a Corn Shucking contest!
The Sweet Corn Fiesta will have fun for all ages including contests, rides, games, food and country music all free with admission.
Tours of the Yesteryear Village - an historical recreation of Florida of the past - will also be given.
Admission is adults $6, children 6-11 $4. Children 5 and under are admitted free. Parking is free. Yesteryear Village is located on the South Florida Fairgrounds in suburban West Palm Beach off Southern Boulevard one mile West of the Florida Turnpike.
