For the first time, Thursday night will also feature live music under the big tent. Food and beverages will be provided by Genoa Pizza and Italian Concessions. The Sugar Grove Volunteer Fire Association will also open the beer tent. For detailed information on the festivals schedule, please visit http://sugargrovecornboil.org/schedule/.
While the month of April may be Autism Awareness month, the Sugar Grove Corn Boil will be lighting it up blue throughout the four-day festival. A vital reason the Corn Boil is put on year after year is to help the community they serve. As this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Corn Boil, it is important to continue to lend their voice to special causes that affect the community. This year, the Sugar Grove Corn Boil has partnered with Giant Steps, specifically the Canopy Program it provides. Giant Steps is an organization that provides support to individuals and families affected by autism. The Canopy program is focused around the needs of adults with autism, providing opportunities that help these individuals interact and engage with others.
An exciting new addition to the event will be to offer a photo booth. The booth will be open Friday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 2p.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 1p.m. to 5 p.m. The Corn Boil Committee requests a donation of $1.00 for each photo session. The booth will also feature an attendant to assist when needed. A maximum of 5 individuals will be allowed inside each session. Within seconds of exiting the booth, you will be given a fun memorable favor from the 50th celebration. The photos will also be featured on an online gallery, for future purchases.
