Corn Fest and Tractor Show will take place rain or shine at Klumpp Park in the Village of Winsdor from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 26. Visitors can experience firsthand the old-fashioned way of shelling corn with Bill Olin and his vintage equipment. It's a unique opportunity to step into history and appreciate the hard work and craftsmanship of farmers in days gone by.

As visitors stroll through the festival grounds, they'll be serenaded by the sound of The Stoutmen and the beats of the Binghamton Steel Drum Band. With live music performances throughout the day, visitors can relax, enjoy their meals, and soak in the festive atmosphere. Tables, chairs, tents, and pavilions are available to provide comfort and shade while reveling in the music.

Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with an array of corn-based foods. Indulge in a classic Corn Dog from Pepe's food tent or savor the buttery goodness of roasted corn-on-the-cob prepared by Windsor Partners.

The event isn't just for adults; there are plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained. Games, crafts, and activities organized by local churches and the Windsor Civic Club will provide endless fun, ensuring families can enjoy a memorable day together. Several organizations will also be present to provide information about their services, and vendors will showcase a variety of unique crafts and wares for sale.

Admission to the Corn Fest is free of charge. While most activities are free or available for a small cost, visitors are encouraged to donate non-perishable food products to support Windsor's Human Development. Barrels will be conveniently placed at the entrances to collect these donations, contributing to the betterment of the community.
