Sweet Corn Festival 5K Adel, IA

Come to run and stay for the fun!

Saturday August 9, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Walkers welcome.

Join us August 9th, 2014 at 8:00 AM for an electrifying race and family friendly street festival.

The race takes place on the scenic brick streets in Adel along the parade route in front of hundreds of spectators. It is exciting to watch the streets come alive as the community celebrates a small town Iowa festival.

After the Adel Sweet Corn Festival 5K run, stick around for one of Iowa’s largest parades. Then head to Adel’s town square for free delicious Deardorf Sweet Corn. The festival is complete with fantastic food vendors and live entertainment for the entire family. The Adel Sweet Corn Festival wraps up with a kickin beer garden and live band.

Thank you to the Dallas County Sheriff Department and Adel Police Department for helping to make this a safe and successful race!  We appreciate your time and service!

It is an unfortunate fact that each and every day, loving, caring parents are forced to watch helplessly as their children suffer from heartbreaking illness and injury. The costs for medical treatments can easily skyrocket, and many families find themselves in the terrible position of not being able to afford the best treatments for their children, especially if travel is involved.
