ST. JUDE SWEET CORN FESTIVAL
After careful consideration and consultation with St. Jude Church and Sweet Corn Festival leadership, we regretfully inform you the traditional Sweet Corn Festival scheduled for August 7-9, 2020, will be cancelled for this year. We thank all our volunteers and patrons who have supported us for 45 years. Please keep an eye on our website, www.judesweetcornfest.com, Facebook, and Instagram pages for updates. We look forward to the 2021 Sweet Corn Festival on August 13-15.
Until then, let us pray and support with charity all who are afflicted with the coronavirus, medical professionals who care for the sick, and those whose lives are impacted by the coronavirus. May those who have died rest in eternal peace, and may their loved ones be comforted.
