Participate in Corn Fest 2019

Corn Fest is back for 2019 and looking for vendors!

Join us Saturday July 20 in Downtown Camp Verde for our signature Corn Fest event focusing on the agricultural heritage of Camp Verde. This one day event features fresh roasted Hauser & Hauser corn, food and other vendors with products for sale as well as non-profit groups and a beer garden. This family friendly event is free for attendees and a perfect chance to showcase your products to an enthusiastic crowd. The event opens at 11 am and continues until 8pm. This year’s one day event will close down Hollamon Street and feature both inside and outside spaces.

The Town of Camp Verde has returned to operating the signature events under the umbrella of Parks & Recreation. After missing last year, the event will be returning for its 27th year celebrating Camp Verde agriculture and hometown fun. According to Michael Marshall, Parks & Recreation Manager, “Shifting the event into the Community Gym and using Hollamon Street for outside vendors means we can beat the heat in the AC and improve the resistance to afternoon monsoons.” This should make for a more enjoyable event for all and extend the fun and vendor opportunities into the evening,” says Marshall.

Local community groups are encouraged to become a vendor to promote and support their organizations. “I think most attendees would rather support a local non-profit when possible,” says Marshall. Booths for non-profits are only $50 per space to help encourage their participation.

Volunteers are also being recruited to help with the event. Community involvement and participation is key to this event remaining vital and alive. Volunteers are needed to help with set-up and tear down as well as gate keepers, entertainment committee help and other assistance including artists. The entertainment committee has organized a varied line-up for the Gym stage with an emphasis on kid involvement and interest. Hauser & Hauser corn will be available and roasted from a new vendor, thereby reducing considerably the volunteers needed for this event, however there is still help needed.

Booth spaces are 10’ x 10’ and indoor spaces include 2 – 8 foot tables. Spaces are $65 each with a discount price of $50 for non-profit groups. Limited electricity is available for $20 and quiet generators are allowed outside.
