The town of Morden presents a festival that will have you grinning from ear to ear of corn and leave you happy down to your apple core. Cringe-worthy puns aside, what could be better than having buttered corn on the cob and cold apple cider on a clear August day?

This festival ensures you can enjoy these tasty eats alongside a variety of festival activities set up on the downtown streets of Morden, and the best part of all: it’s entirely free!

Completely run by volunteers, there is an immense sense of community at Corn and Apple Fest where you’ll see attendees of all ages enjoying festival events. “Saturday morning’s priority is our giant parade, one of the largest in Manitoba,” Cheryl Link, festival spokesperson, says.

On Sunday there’s a show ‘n shine car and motorcycle show. During the day they have rides, petting zoos, food vendors, music and craft tents along with the art walk and historical bus tours. Friday and Saturday night features main stage events with cocktail tents and music from this year’s headliner PRiSM. Make sure to stop in Morden for free corn, fun and puns.
