At the Clinton County Corn Festival you can feel the rumble of a 70-year-old, 200 horsepower diesel engine, or get a close-up look at other antique power equipment such as windmills, stone crushers, wheat thrashers, and corn shellers, and the list goes on and on. Come for the country cooking, or to browse the displays of antiques, crafts, and demonstrations of life on the farm as it used to be. There’s no lack of musical entertainment either, as the full schedule includes country, gospel, and bluegrass. The festival also features a quilt show, an antique car show, and an antique tractor show. You can even experience a horse-pulling contest, as teams from across the state are invited to participate. Rural America is alive and well in Clinton County. Hope to see you there on September 7-9 at the Clinton County Fairgrounds.
