​2020 Sullivan County Rotary Corn Festival Entertainment Gate Admission Fee.

The Sullivan Rotary Club will be accessing an Entertainment Gate Admission Fee for the
nightly entertainment held at Central Plaza September 16-19, 2020.

Admission will be $10 to purchase a bracelet (ticket) for the performance each night.
A pre- sale 4-Day Pass value bracelet will be available for $25. That will admit anyone wearing
it all 4 days of the Entertainment. Any patron 16 years of age or younger will be admitted free of charge.

The gate fee will help pay for the many expenses (security, electrical improvements, trash
removal, and restrooms) incurred to produce the yearly Festival that has seen record growth for 3
years in a row!

It is our sincere desire to improve and grow the Festival every year to be one of the premiere
Festivals in the State of Indiana.

We look forward to welcoming each and everyone of you to the 2020 Sullivan County Rotary
Corn Festival featuring the first class Luehrs Amusements, a stellar Parade line-up, a fun Turtle
Derby, Free Corn Feed, and World Class Entertainment Nightly!

Thank you,
