Top 10 reasons to check out the Corn Boil
A very important responsibility of the Corn Boil is giving back to the community. The three-day event provides local groups and vendors an opportunity to raise funds via the large audience. In addition, after our annual event is done and our books are balanced, we are able to share our profit with local not-for-profit organizations, e.g. Between Friends Food Pantry, West Town Human Services Network, Sugar Grove Park District, the Township Senior Center, Big Rock Park District, and many other important organizations. Over the years, many organizations have hosted the Sugar Grove Corn Boil beginning with neighbors, then the Community Club, the Village of Sugar Grove, the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce, and since 2004, the volunteer run Sugar Grove Corn Boil, NFP.
