Nothing says summer like fresh farm picked sweet corn and finger licking BBQ. Get those wet naps and dancing shoes ready for an awesome weekend of delicious food, live music, and family fun.

How do you like your barbecue? Sweet, spicy, dry rubbed, smoked or smothered in BBQ sauce? We have you covered with over 25 vendors offering mouthwatering items such as roasted and steamed sweet corn with multiple seasonings, a variety of beef, pork and chicken BBQ including Memphis, Carolina, Texas & Kansas City styles from award winning BBQ vendors. Plus cold brews, soft drinks and festival treats like funnel cake, soft ice cream, soft pretzels and corn pie.

Non-stop live entertainment, all with a western theme, includes country show band The Brian Dean Moore Band all weekend long under the huge fest tent. Country line dancing demonstrations and instructions will be provided in front of the main stage. Local favorite, the Liz Nordstrom Trio, will perform both afternoons in the air-conditioned EZ Bumps Saloon.



The Country Kids area will provide interactive magic shows, juggling shows, and summer picnic games for the kids.

Finally guests are encouraged to bring a shopping bag as fresh locally grown corn will be available for sale at Sue's Produce tent.
