The creators of Cornstalk DSM promise it to be a "corn-tastic time." The corn-themed event celebrates Iowa's biggest—and possibly tastiest—crop. The festival is comprised of four distinct events: Cornball, Cornmeal, Cornucopia, and Cornholio. At Cornball, VIPs enjoy gourmet corn-based dishes and beer pairings before dancing to tunes from a DJ, while at Cornmeal, guests can sample bites of corny dishes from local restaurants and catering companies as live music from The Snacks fills the room. For corn purists, Cornucopia offers live music and corny awards with an all-you-can-eat sweet-corn feast featuring flavor-infused butters, and at Cornholio, 32 teams compete in games of old-fashioned corn hole (bags) and enjoy beer from Exile Brewery. A portion of the proceeds from the three-day event go to the Food Bank of Iowa.

Cornucopia offers live music and corny awards with all you can eat sweet corn feast.
