Camp Verde CornFest
Camp Verde, Arizona
The Verde Valley of central Arizona has the best sweet corn you have ever tasted! The Camp Verde Cornfest started in 1991 as a way to not only feature our wonderful corn, but to have fun with our friends and neighbors at the height of the corn season and the summer. We always begin on Friday at 3pm with activities for all ages, music, vendors and, of course, hot, roasted, buttered sweet corn. We will also sell uncooked corn by the dozen. Saturday is a full day with more delicious corn and even more to do.
