Upcoming Events

2020 Sweet Corn Festival -CANCELLED!

Begins: 8/13/2020
Ends: 8/16/2020

The people of West Point deserve many congratulations. Without their commitment to the Sweet Corn Festival, it could never have soared to its present level of success. The West Point Community Club, the Corn Festival's sponsor, assigns a three hour shift to set up, serve, cook, clean up or to chair a particular festival event to every community member and even some volunteers from surrounding communities. On the Wednesday evening before the Festival, most of the town, and many from out of town, show up to help shuck the corn at what is now called "Shuck Fest". Food, drinks and prizes are now served up at "Shuck Fest" which is sponsored by two local businesses - Merschman Seeds Inc. & Lee County Bank & Trust. Also, volunteers work most of the week to set up the corn cooker, chicken pit, bleachers and stage. The Sweet Corn Festival also has a four to six couple committee that volunteers to organize the Festival for two years at a time.

As always, the Festival promises to be a fun time for the entire family. There is always something for everyone, from arts, crafts and carnival rides to bingo in the park! Below are some events that take place every year:

• Free hot, buttered sweet corn is served throughout the festival.

• Barbequed pork chop dinners are available Thursday evening.

• Barbequed chicken dinners are available Friday through Sunday.

• The main stage provides several free entertainment events including: The queen coronation, local dance team performances, sweet corn eating contest, pee-wee drags, junior water fights, horseshoe tournament.
