Each year during the Sweet Corn Festival, there are major prize ticket drawings nightly for a building full of prizes! These tickets are sold leading up to the festival and then throughout the duration of the festival.
Major prize tickets can be purchased from numerous nonprofit organizations that are part of our festival family or from any Millersport Lion member. During the Sweet Corn Festival the only place to purchase a chance to win is at the Major Prize Building located at Founders Commons, only a few feet from the place to purchase our delicious, hot buttered sweet corn. The tickets are affordable at $2 each or $5 for a book of 3 tickets. Buy as many as you want, no limit to the number of prizes you can win!
