St. Jude Church, 50 Edgewood Rd NW

Due to the coronavirus, the St. Jude Church Sweet Corn Festival will be celebrated differently this year.  On Saturday, August 8, we hope to have a St. Jude Sweet Corn Festival Community Drive allowing us to give back to support the Cedar Rapids metro area while still following public health concerns.

The tentative plan for the day is:

7:30 AM – 3:30 PM

7:30 AM – 7:00 PM

  • Food Drive (non-perishables)

  • Household Cleaning Supply Drive

  • School Supply Drive

9:00 AM—until the sweet corn is gone

  • SCF Sweet Corn Stand (unhusked/uncooked) $7/dz.

11:00 AM – 7:00 PM (cash only)

  • Festival Sandwiches/Chips/Drinks (CARRYOUT ONLY)

  • 50/50 Raffle

  • Festival t-shirts for sale
