This past weekend, we were fortunate enough to be visiting near Taylor, AZ on the same day they were hosting their Annual Sweet Corn Festival. I couldn’t resist the chance to check out the small town as they celebrated their big harvest.
We watched the parade and then headed across the road to see the children’s footraces and a muddy game of tug of war. We finished up with a chance to smash a car for charity. The boys are still talking about the sledgehammers they used!
This was our first year at the festival, but not our first chance to taste Taylor’s fantastic sweet corn. I’ve been bribing my brother to bring it down to us each fall for a few years now. I was thrilled to have the chance to pick up some corn and experience the festival for ourselves. If you ever find yourself in Taylor, AZ on the weekend of their corn harvest, I highly recommend that you get your hands on some corn for yourself.
The kids came home exhausted from a day in the sun and I came home craving that corn. I fixed one of our favorite corn skillets for dinner and then grabbed a notebook to do some more recipe planning. I have several dozen ears waiting on the counter tonight and I’m betting it won’t last too long!
