Taber Cornfest

Friday, August 24

Taber is the Corn Capital of Canada, and celebrates every year with Alberta’s biggest free festival, the Taber Cornfest. What makes Taber corn so good? The Town of Taber is in a region that has more days of bright sunshine than anywhere else in Canada, which results in corn that is “five times sweeter than regular corn-on-the-cob”, according to Canadabadlands.com. Why wouldn’t you want to try the sweetest corn there is? And the best place to try it out is at Taber’s Cornfest. Cornfest is full of great family fun and events, a full midway, pancake breakfast, live entertainment, fireworks, contests and much more! The corn stuffing contest is an annual favorite, as well as the Chili Cook-Off. Cornfest will be held on August 24 & 25 in 2012. Mark it on your calendars to attend this year.
