Best food event in South Florida 2017: Sweet Corn Fiesta

BEST FOOD EVENT / FESTIVAL

Sweet Corn Fiesta

​​​​​​​Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach; SweetCornFiesta.com

Palm Beach County is the sweet corn capital of the world, and every April, South Floridians gather to celebrate the coveted title with corn dogs, corn nuggets, corn on the cob and a corn-shucking contest. The day culminates with a corn-eating competition where professional eaters from around the country see who can clear kernels off the most cobs. The 2017 winner, Carmen Cincotti, of New Jersey, took down nearly 62 ears of corn in 12 minutes and took home a prize of $6,100.
