The Louisiana Corn Festival is held every year the second full weekend in June. The festival and slogan "Aw Shucks" originated in 1986 and still is the only corn festival in the state of Louisiana. The name Louisiana Corn Festival was given to honor the impact that agriculture has on our economy and a Corn Farmer is honored each year. This festival has something for all ages. There is music every night with live bands Friday and Saturday night with a street dance, games, contests, corn cooking contest, children's parade, pirogue races, corn shucking contest and corn eating contest! We also host a state wide softball tournament. With thousands of visitors each year our family friendly atmosphere makes the Louisiana Corn Festival an annual event to attend for families across our great state of Louisiana! All proceeds of the festival are put back into the community, festival grounds, and projects throughout the city. So follow the rows of corn down to Bunkie, where you are sure to have a corn shucking good time!!
