If you like corn, fun, games, corn, live music and corn, then Hein Park on S. Bridge Street in Markesan is the place to be Saturday, August 19, 2017.
The highlight of every Augustfest is the free corn, roasted up fresh on site, with a new batch coming off the heat about every 15 minutes.
The corn will start flowing at about 4:30 p.m. in Hein Park, but this year's EXPANDED Augustfest schedule offers much, much more!
