Sweet Corn Festival
Nothing says summer like fresh-picked sweet corn! Lauritzen Gardens celebrates this backyard favorite and Nebraska’s agricultural jewel during the all-new Sweet Corn Festival. Guests can enjoy a variety of activities, entertainment and plenty of delicious, locally grown sweet corn. They can hop on the hayrack ride, cool off with free samples of “Nebraska Sweet Corn” ice cream from Ted & Wally’s Premium Homemade Ice Cream, navigate the maize maze, purchase freshly popped kettle corn and learn about corn (and other New World foods) through fun, educational activities. Guests can also explore new ways to incorporate sweet corn during special cooking demonstrations. Live entertainment will be featured throughout the weekend and Hap Abraham Catering will offer fresh hot buttered corn, a variety of sweet corn items and other fresh fare from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Sweet Corn Festival is included with regular garden admission of $7/adults, $3/children ages 6-12. The event is free for garden members and children under six.
