The Corn Festival has been rated the best one-day festivals in Pennsylvania by the PA Festivals Association. Held rain or shine in downtown Shippensburg, voted one of the "Best Small Towns in America", from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 29.


The downtown main streets are closed to vehicular traffic and transformed into a huge street fair for the day. Crafts, an antique car show, food booths, entertainment, and children's activities offer something for everyone. There are more than 300 crafts and antique vendors, selected by jury. Food booths feature corn in every available form. Entertainers perform all day at three sites throughout the festival and there are a variety of strolling acts and demonstrations. All events at the Festival are free, so bring the family for a day of fun.
