Southeast Ohio’s sweet corn is special. The perfect blend of flavors that signify what summer is all about for this region.

This weekend, lovers of sweet corn can fill their bellies with sweet corn dipped in salty, melted butter and served on the cob during the annual Sweet Corn Festival in Marietta.

Marietta’s tastiest festival begins Friday, July 19 at East Muskingum Park.

Not only can you get your sweet corn fix, there will be entertainment during the two-day festival held at Marietta’s East Muskigum Park. Local musicians and entertainers are on tap Friday night and Saturday.

The Marietta-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau sponsors the festival and proceeds from the event are used to fund scholarships to Washington County High School seniors pursuing a degree in agriculture.
