Lauritzen Gardens celebrates sweet corn, a backyard favorite, and Nebraska’s agricultural jewel during the Sweet Corn Festival!
Guests can enjoy a variety of activities, entertainment and plenty of delicious, locally grown sweet corn. They can hop on the hayrack ride, purchase freshly popped kettle corn and learn about corn (and other New World foods) through fun, educational activities.
Guests can also explore new ways to incorporate sweet corn during special cooking demonstrations. Live entertainment will be featured throughout the weekend as well!
In addition to corn, this year's festival will be spiced up with the celebration of chile peppers, another New World Food. Learn about the natural history of chile peppers, how to grow peppers and how to cook with them.
Fresh hot buttered corn, a variety of sweet corn items and other fresh fare will be available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Sweet Corn Festival is included with regular garden admission of $10/adults, $5/children ages 6-12. The event is free for garden members and children under six.
