Brentwood Corn Festival
Brentwood's main festival for many years was the Brentwood Corn Festival, aptly named as a celebration for Brentwood's well-loved sweet corn. It was a large all-weekend event in July that features fireworks on the first night. The last Brentwood Cornfest was held in 2013, and our last article on it is below....

The information below is about the 2013 Brentwood Corn Festival.
A summertime barbeque is just not complete without some sweet Brentwood corn. Brentwood is probably where a large part of the bay area's corn supply comes from.
Corn season typically starts in June. What better way to celebrate than an annual corn festival? Brentwood's Corn Festival typically falls on the 3-day weekend (Friday-Sunday) after the 4th of July.
The Brentwood Corn Festival is scheduled on July 12-14, 2013. The hours are Friday from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. (Fireworks at 9:30 p.m.), Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It will be held at the same location as last year at Technology Way/Sand Creek Blvd.
Come early, especially on Friday as there is usually a line to get in! This is a fun event for the whole family - live music, carnival, children's area, corn activities, arts and crafts, and lots of food! Entrance prices are $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens aged 62 and up and children up to age 12. Kids 5 and under are free.
