Culture, History & Festivals


Sullivan Annual Rotary Corn Festival


The 2024 Festival will be held Wednesday, September 18 through Saturday, September 21.


The annual Free Corn Feed and Corn Eating Contest will be held on the City Square after the finish of the parade on Section Street which starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday. The Festival offers many avenues for entertainment including a great Carnival, vendors, food, and the annual Turtle Race.  With the exception of the parade and music, every activity is centered on the City Square.


The festival continues to offer outstanding professional music groups each night.  Even better for our Festival visitors, the concerts are free, thanks to generous sponsors; just bring your own lawn chair down to Sullivan Central Plaza. You will have the opportunity to enjoy top-rate music without the costs of high-priced tickets and without having to drive out of town.
