MILLER HARDWARE/MILWAUKEE TOOL ADDED TO PREMIER SPONSOR LIST
Welcome our newest "Premier" sponsor, Miller Hardware/Milwaukee Tool. Watch for surprise announcements coming soon on special offers at the 2013 Cornstock festival!
WHAT DATE IS CORNSTOCK 2013?
BACK, AND FORTH, AND BACK AGAIN!
Yep. That about sums it up. Wow.
So, to be good neighbors and not conflict with the Kincaid Fair (a/k/a "Worlds Fair"), we decided to change our date from Sepember 28 to September 14. We were then notified that due to circumstances beyond their control the fair organizers had to move the Kincaid Fair to September 14th. Not to mention, recent announcements of a new country music festival nearby were added to the mix-all on September 14th. Therefore, the decision was made to move Cornstock 2013 back to our orignal date.
Cornstock 2013 (a/k/a "Anderson County Corn Festival") will be SEPTEMBER 28, 2013.
Some of the entertainment announcements for the September 28th Cornstock Concert on the Hill will be made officially at the Garnett Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet on January 31, 2014. Announcements on this website to follow. TIckets are available to the banquet by contacting the chamber office at 785.448.6767. Enjoy this gala event with great food, a chance to mingle with many of Cornstock's fine sponsors and be among the first people to find out who is performing at Cornstock 2013! www.garnettchamber.org
