Get Involved

Take pride in the community by volunteering.

Take one or two hours of your time and sign up to volunteer at Sweet Corn Days. Our volunteers are the reason we can continue to have a successful festival! In 2023, we had 187 volunteer slots with 135 of them were filled prior to the event. Thank you to our past volunteers. 

Businesses please partake in the celebration of our community.

Businesses feel free to hand out coupons or merch during the parade (no registration required for parade entry). Or stop by the park on Thursday during the free Chalk the Walk event and create a design that could include your logo or specials. If your business has an event you would like to add to our event schedule, please contact us prior to June 5th.

Unable to donate funds but still want to be involved?

We are looking for local organizations, businesses, and groups to host events or provide new equipment. This is an opportunity to partake in a community event or promote your business. Please contact us as we have a running list of ideas we’ve taken from festival goers in the past.

Interested in joining the Sweet Corn Days Committee?

Our committee works together to plan and book the event line up, prepare logistics, ensure adequate safety and security, organize volunteer efforts, find sponsors, review and analyze feedback, prepare the grounds prior to the event, volunteer during the event, and tear down after the event.

Anyone who lives or works in Elkader, or sees Elkader as their home community can join. Contact us today by messaging us on Facebook or calling Danielle Shea at 563-920-2336.
