Entertain us!


Dear Corn Festival Entertainer:

We are gearing up for another Corn Festival in Shippensburg, PA on Saturday, August 27, 2022. We invite you to join our celebration. We have thousands of visitors during this one-day festival who will enjoy your performance. The 2022 Corn Festival will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

We have two venues for performances. One is the main stage in the middle of the festival, which we generally reserve for larger groups. The other is in the western part of the festival at our town Gazebo. This is a more intimate space, reserved for single performers or duos. We are looking for musicians/dancers/singing groups, etc. that will fit into our venues.

We generally have over 35,000 visitors during this one-day festival. We have spots available throughout the day, starting at 8 a.m. Spots are assigned by the entertainment committee.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to the 41st Annual Corn Festival in Shippensburg, PA.

Friendly regards,

Corn Festival
