SUGAR GROVE CORN BOIL | Popular Summer Festival Dates Back to 1967

Sugar Grove Corn Boil, Glancer Magazine


The history of the Sugar Grove Corn Boil takes us back to 1967. It started as a small community gathering put on by the Young Adult Club, for the purpose of raising funds for the local community. In years to come, the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Village helped grow the event.

2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the Sugar Grove Corn Boil. Over the years many things have changed, yet at its core, the festival remains the same. “Where friends and family come together to have fun!” is the slogan of the Sugar Grove Corn Boil, NFP.

From the community gathering with a population in the hundreds to what today is a four-day festival with an average attendance of 35,000, the event continues to evolve. What makes the event even more unique is that it is still FREE to attend! Enjoy FREE Admission, Free Parking, Live Music, Carnival, Food and Crafters, and Fireworks on Saturday.

For the fifty-first Sugar Grove Corn Boil Festival the event will be honoring our first responders. The committee is looking to raise awareness, support, celebrate, honor, and simply say thank you. Every day first responders put their lives on the line to ensure our safety. They are everyday heroes that don’t ask for special attention. They are fellow members of our communities; our neighbors, our friends, and members of our family.

Join the community of Sugar Grove at Volunteer Park July 26-29. Sponsorships available. For more information, visit
