Embracing the festival's obvious corniness, in the past the Tall Corn Festival has had themes such as "May the Corn be with You," "Cornstock" and "Can you ear me now?" This year's theme is "Corn in the USA." With such awesome catch phrases, how could the festival not be fun? Arts and craft booths will surround Rossville's city park, along with food vendors.
