Central Florida Weekend Events - Zellwood Corn Festival and Royal Pacific Aloha Fridays

Looking for a fun event this weekend?

This festival is always a good time

The Zellwood Sweet Corn Festival is a combination of outdoor family fun and entertainment. We have plenty of activities for everyone, young and old. Everyone loves to watch "BIG BERTHA" at work. She can cook 1,650 ears of corn every 9 minutes, in 350 gallons of boiling water!

  1. In case anyone is interested, I ended up going to both events. Zellwood is a little overpriced for what it is in my opinion, but I really enjoyed Aloha Friday.

    I wrote about both on my blog.

      I looked into the Zellwood corn festival earlier in the year and the website said it was cancelled. Glad it happened... sad I missed it.
