Join us August 12th, 2017 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.
