Don't settle for imitation Taber corn. Drive down and taste the real thing in Taber during the annual Cornfest runs August 24-26, entrance is free!
Drive down to southern Alberta and bite into the sweetest corn you've ever tasted from the Corn Capital of Canada. Nothing beats the super sweet corn varieties grown in this region of Alberta, the mouth watering hot and fresh corn with butter, with salt, or just on its own. Mmmm!
Stay at the Heritage Inn Hotel & Convention Centre, proud sponsor of Cornfest, we are located minutes away from all the Cornfest festivities. We will be serving Taber Corn all weekend, courtesy of Johnson Farms.
