Feast on a bounty of corn-centric delicacies, take part in a bevy of hands-on, corn-related activities at the lower Hudson Valley's only corn festival.
Play games like Konk a Crow and Ring a Cob in the CORNival area. Compete in corn shucking races and learn how to make a corn husk doll. Enjoy both historic and modern cooking demonstrations (using corn as the main ingredient, of course), and discover the irresistible charm of English country dancing in the barn. Traverse a kid-sized mini maize maze and design a one-of-a-kind scarecrow. Tour the 18th-century Manor House and Mill, and watch demonstrations of coopering (barrel-making) and the grinding of corn on a quern stone. Enjoy live bluegrass and folk music. All visitors get a free bag popcorn as they enter!
Other maize-inspired food selections include cornbread, corn salsa and chips, and corn chili, plus sweet corn ice cream from the Blue Pig and draft beers and draft root beer from Captain Lawrence Brewery.
