Theme or No Theme

E-mail Print PDF

Year after year we try to come up with an interesting theme for the Annual Corn Festival.  And every year some people love it, others don't feel the love, and some people just don't care about the theme.  So this year, we decided to go with no theme.  This doesn't mean you can't decorate - It just means we couldn't come up with any awesome theme this year so we're going back to the basics.  It's the "El Paso Corn Festival" so use that for your inspiration and decorate accordingly.

We will have something available either on this page or at the information booth where you can submit Theme ideas for future years.

Thank You,


The Committee

Parade Form Correction

E-mail Print PDF

Please check the date on your parade sign-up forms.  We had a few instances where the parade form that was mailed out had last years dates on it.  The parade is on Saturday this year just like it always is.  Again, the parade will be on Saturday September 6th at 12:00.   Thank You.

Food, Food, and More Food

food vendors

No one goes away hungry if they come to our festival.  Between the Carnival food, food in the tents, and the three dinners served in the library park each night there are plenty of options for lunch, dinner, and everything else.  On Thursday night we have the local Fireman's Steak Fry, Friday night is the Kiwanis Spaghetti dinner, and on Saturday it is the Baptist Church Chicken dinner.  In the tents we always have Uncle Bob's ice cream, the Lutheran booth with more fresh pies than you can imagine, and the local Boy Scouts cooking up pork chops all day and night!
