Shippensburg Corn Festival 2018

The annual Corn Festival, which was canceled in 2020, will move to the Shippensburg Fairgrounds in August 2021.

The annual Shippensburg Corn Festival in August will temporarily move from the downtown to the Shippensburg Fairgrounds this year due to COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

Organizers announced the change late last week. The festival will be held on Aug. 28.

“The committee recognizes that this festival is a downtown event, and we have all intentions of returning to our downtown,” organizers said in an announcement. “For this year, though, after conferring with local and state officials, we just felt that our best chance of having the Shippensburg Corn Festival this year was to move to the Shippensburg Fairgrounds.”

Organizers are still working on the details of the event, which will be posted at throughout the summer leading up to the festival.
