It’s that time of the year in the local communities in Obion County to celebrate CornFest! There will be several different events like concerts, pageants, fashion shows, art contest, pie eating contest, and even bed races. These events will be hosted all over Obion County, including Discovery Park of America!
To kick things off, on Thursday, September 13, 2018, Discovery Park will be hosting the FREE CornFest concert brought to you by Obion County CornFest and Williams Sausage. This event will be held at Libation Station beginning at 5:30 with music from Mandy Vixen and Gas Station Chicken followed by Blackberry Breeze. Blue Bank Resort will be selling catfish plates for $10 & $12 and there will be a cash bar available on the trains. Come out and enjoy an evening of friends and great music!
The FREE concert is only the beginning! On Saturday, September 15, 2018, The Great American Airshow will take place at Discovery Park of America. At 3:00 PM, Discovery Park will open its doors FREE for guests to explore all of the exhibits. All exhibits will close at 5:00 PM, but hang out on the Great Lawn to see the airshow which is scheduled to start at 5:00 PM. There will also be food trucks, yard games, and bouncy houses for the kids and a cash bar for adults. These activities will be open from 3:00-5:00. The food vendors may stay open a little after 5:00 PM. We hope to see you there!
The last event that will be held at Discovery Park will be the Obion County CornFest Fashion Show on Monday, September 17, 2018. Get your closets fall ready with the latest trends as the beautiful fall lines are showcased by your favorite local stores.

Last day to purchase your tickets is Wednesday, September 12. Call 731-885-7000 for more information on tickets. Doors will open at 4:30 PM for vendor shopping and social hour.
