The annual Cornfest and Craft Fair at Community Church of Rolling Meadows is back.

The Cornfest will be held from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7; the Craft Fair from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission to the grounds is free.

 

The menu features all you can eat sweet corn, grown locally and picked just hours before it is boiled and smothered in butter. The meal also includes your choice of grilled sandwich (hamburger, brat or hot dog, with grilled onions and condiments) as well as a slice of watermelon and a cold beverage.

Seating under a canopy, as well as open air seating, will be available.

Meal tickets may be purchased at the door. Cost is $15 for adults; $13 for seniors; and $5 for kids ages 4-10. Children 3 and younger receive a free hot dog meal.

Presale tickets are available online at www.communitychurchrm.com with $1 discount.

And, back by popular demand, is the "drive-through," which enables you to get a $15 meal to go without getting out of your car. Fresh picked sweet corn also will be bagged for sale by the dozen or half-dozen.

A tradition since 1957, this popular event is a source of community fellowship each August. Come and spend the day with Community Church of Rolling Meadows dining, visiting, shopping and taking a chance on a 50/50 raffle.
