Since 1950, the Cokato Corn Carnival has provided fun and entertainment for the entire family. During that time we have given away hundreds of tons of delicious, free, buttered corn on the cob. The Cokato Corn Carnival committee would like to welcome you to come and enjoy!
The Cokato Corn Carnival is a very family friendly event. All activities take place in Peterson Park in the center of Cokato. Admission, parking and entertainment are all free! There are rides and games, including corn bingo, and many concessions available in the park. Stipe Shows has been providing the rides and midway for over 30 years!
Free corn-on-the-cob is served on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon from 4-8. Besides the parade Monday night, additional entertainment takes place on stage Tuesday and Wednesday evening. (Please see the list of events for more information.) Peterson Park has grass terraces where you can sit and watch the entertainment! Feel free to bring along a blanket or lawn chair for your comfort.
Children’s prize drawings are held Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. These are free but you MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN. For more information, stop in at one of the information booths at the park.
We encourage you to purchase a $4.00 raffle ticket from one of the information booths. You will receive a free button and a chance to win cash prizes. The winning names are drawn on Wednesday evening at 10:00pm. You do not need to be present to win. Information about the cash prizes can be obtained at the information booths. As an important source of it’s fundraising, a great way to support the Corn Carnival is to purchase a raffle ticket!
Information booths are at the northeast corner and near the corn stand on the south side of the park. Ride tickets can be purchased at the Stipe Shows ticket booth in the Midway. Watch for weather announcements and updates on this website or at the Corn Carnival Lovers Fan Page on Facebook.

Animals whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and are therefore not allowed on grounds.
