sweet corn fest circus jugglers

The 2020 Sweet Corn Circus, along with other August performances in Uptown Normal, has been canceled due to uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.

Due to concerns and uncertainties regarding the coronavirus, the 2020 Sweet Corn Circus and Uptown Normal concerts set for August have been canceled, as decided by the Town of Normal.

Previously known as the Sweet Corn Blues Festival, the two-day Sweet Corn Circus brings in thousands of guests. The festival helps celebrate agriculture and Bloomington-Normal's circus roots, featuring a number of performances and vendors. The 2020 event would have marked a new partnership with Maddox Sweet Corn.

LoungeAbout the Roundabout performances for the month of August and the Cruisin' Uptown Normal event have also been canceled.
