Did you know that there are over 500 uses for corn? My personal favorite is roasted on the cob with a little butter but at CORNucopia, a festival dedicated to corn, you can learn many of its other uses and enjoy corn-related activities, crafts and food. Come to Sleepy Hollow this Labor Day weekend to celebrate the end of the summer with one of the best things about summer – corn!
Kids can get hands-on with activities like crafting cornhusk brooms, making their own butter, and designing scarecrows. They’ll race to the finish in the child-sized “mini maize maze” and the corn-shucking contest, and test their skills in a variety of corn-themed games.
Live bluegrass and folk music by the Tappan Cowboys entertains visitors throughout the day. Revelers fond of two-stepping can put their best foot forward during the barn dances with the help of a caller. A juggler performs a-maize-ing feats with ears of corn and more.
Food selections available for purchase include fresh roasted corn, veggie corn burgers, corn tortilla casserole, cornbread, corn muffins, kettle corn, and popcorn, plus draft beers and draft root beer from Captain Lawrence Brewery. Blue Pig of Croton-on-Hudson will feature sweet corn ice cream.
