About the Festival
Shippensburg Corn Festival is held every year on the last Saturday in August. It is a fun community event with food, entertainment, craft, corn eating contest, car show, and more.
The festival is presented by the Corn Festival Committee. Original name of the Committee was Shippensburg Heritage and Recreation Planning Society(SHARP). A group of local residents formed SHARP out of concern for the demolition of some of the oldest buildings in their historic community.
The corn festival was created as a fundraiser for SHARP. To date, the festival has donated over $400,000 to local projects. In 2023, Shippensburg Corn Festival will take place on Saturday, August 26.
