Press Release:
57th Annual Eden Corn Festival Cancellation
The Eden Corn Festival Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to officially cancel
the 57th Annual Eden Corn Festival scheduled for August 6th–9th.
Much consideration was given to every aspect of the Festival. With many months of planning
already into the event, it was decided that the event could not commence this year due to all the
uncertainties with the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The Board felt it would be too much of a financial strain to attempt to put on the Festival and
comply with all State, County, and Local “Social Distancing” requirements due to the
unpredictability of the ever changing criteria associated with the pandemic. The Health and
Safety of our committee members, volunteers, sponsors, employees, and patrons is of the
utmost importance to the Board.
Our thoughts go out to the many dedicated volunteers, organizations, businesses, and
employees, that benefit financially from the Festival. Lets hope 2021 bring us better times.
The tentative dates for the 2021 Festival are August 5th – 8th.
