July 9, 2020 NEWS RELEASE

The Grundy County Corn Festival in Morris, IL for 2020 has been officially canceled due to the Pandemic.

The Grundy County Corn Festival Board unanimously voted to cancel this year’s festival due to so many unknowns and variables at this time. We know that the cancellation will be a big disappointment for many people. Please know that our board made this decision with heavy hearts and analyzed every avenue to make it happen to no avail. The attendees, staff & volunteers of our festival and our community’s well-being/safety is of utmost concern to all of us.

The Illinois Department of Public Health currently has not published their festival and parade guidelines, the state’s inspectors for carnivals are not doing inspections, and there is a possibility that we cannot obtain necessary permits/licenses for this year.

Again, we are deeply saddened in making this extremely difficult decision, but look forward to another great festival in 2021.
