Olathe Corn Festival Draws Thousands

The 15th annual Olathe Corn Festival attracted corn lovers from all over to taste the golden goodness of Olathe's famous sweet corn.

It takes an estimated 80 thousand ears of corn to satisfy the appetites of the festival goers and all of it is locally grown and donated.
The town of Olathe has been celebrating their corn agriculture for fifteen years and it has grown bigger every year turning a town of 2,000 into a city of 20,000.
The festival features boiled and roasted sweet corn as well as live music, activities and vendors, but it's not all fun and games.
The festival also helps Western Slope non-profit agencies raise more that $55,000 each year.
