Porktoberfest at Day Block Brewing

What better way to acknowledge the end of summer than with an all-day block party featuring pork and beer? PorktoberFest will have a lot of both: lots of locally-made food (with an emphasis on pork) and lots of craft beer. There also will be plenty of vegetarian options and a whole slew of live music.

While the event itself starts at 11:00 am, the live music will kick off at 2:00 pm and will feature:

• Hustle Rose
• The Lone Crows
• Moon Grass Trio
• Fairfax, AK
• Frankie Teardrop
• Basement Brew

Valleyfair's long-standing tradition continues at the 39th Annual Green Giant Corn Feast over Labor Day Weekend. Guests can treat themselves to over 30,000 lbs of FREE corn-on-the-cob from Green Giant (while supplies last). Bring the entire family and eat as much corn as you want all weekend long.

In addition to the daily free corn - the Valleyfair Culinary Team has cooked up some amazing special meals that will only be available during the Green Giant Corn Feast! All Corn Feast special locations will be located around Gazebo Stage. There will also be live music and a corn eating contest.
