The 18th annual Sweet Corn Festival will be held at St. Cyprian’s Church in Franklin on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bill Crawford, who has been a part of the festival since its inception, says, “We offer this event to the community each year, and it’s perfect for Franklin. There’s something for everyone. We all have a great time, both festival workers and attendees.”

Back by popular demand, the Corn Fest Silent Auction is a highlight of this year’s festival.

“People will be amazed at the enticing array of auction items,” said Laurie Wright, auction chair. “We have certificates for great dining in Franklin, Highlands, Cherokee and Clayton, golfing, river rafting, zip lining, horseback riding, theater passes, gifts and home décor. There are items for every taste and budget, so we urge everyone to come check it out.”
