Since 1969, the Scandinavia Booster Club has presented the “Scandinavia Corn Roast.” The Scandinavia Booster Club actually was formed in 1927 as a community/civic minded organization. Incorporated in 1966 and receiving 501(c)(3) status in 1986, the purpose of the Scandinavia Booster Club is “To engage in the promotion of public affairs and civic functions for the betterment and well-being of the Village of Scandinavia and the surrounding community.”
The corn roast started as a one-day August event to compliment the Scandinavia Free Fair held earlier in the summer. As time went on, the fair was disbanded but the corn roast has grown into a three day event. Friday night, the Scandinavia Volunteer Fire Department holds their annual firefighter’s dance in conjunction with the weekend. The Scandinavia Viking Baseball Club puts on a softball tournament Friday and Saturday and hosts two B.A.B.A. baseball games on Sunday.
The 48th Scandinavia Corn Roast is slated for August 5, 6, & 7. All weekend long enjoy Fun Pros – inflatables and bounce houses, a petting zoo, pony rides, great food and refreshments, great entertainment, and there’ll be a Friday night fish fry. Saturday includes the parade on Main Street and a Truck Pull. Sunday attend an outdoor church service, ball games, farm & antique tractor pulls, the corn roast and pie & ice cream social.
The Scandinavia Corn Roast Chainsaw Artist Wood Sculpting Competition, which began in 2012, will return. To participate please email at email@example.com or call 715-498-0455. Information about the competition can be found at cornroast.net
A lot of live music is scheduled, including the “Highfield Drive Band,” from Milwaukee Friday night. Saturday it’s “Orlow and The CWB Band,” “Railroad Ron,” and our headliner “Ask Your Mother.” Sunday’s church service will have music by “Shepherd’s Quarter,” polka music by “Old Time Sounds,” and the progressive high-energy string band “HORSESHOES and HANDGRENADES!”
