Sit back, chill and hang out a while.
Friday, Aug 16 + Saturday, AUG. 17
Lance Park in Twin Lakes, WI
CORN for dayzzzz.
Your $6 entry into TL CornFest gives you the glorious all-you-can-eat corn wristband. That’s right…as much corn as your heart desires. And, you can fix it up with a wide variety of toppings or go OG with some sweet butter ‘n salt. Lookin' for something else to indulge in? There will also be hamburgers, brats, hot dogs, nachos, snacks, beverages (water, gatorade, soda) and more.
ALL DAY ACTION on the water.
Action on the water … ALL … DAY… LONG with SIX different watersports competitions that put a fun twist on traditional waterskiing contests by harnessing the moments that put us on the water in the first place. For example, taking a barefoot run in nothing but your jean shorts because you forgot your wetsuit at home, but wanted to ski so badly. The contests include:
Feet on Fire North (head-to-head barefoot endurance)
Trick Ski Showdown (classic trick-skiing with a new school twist)
Freestyle Jump Royale (two-man team jump)
Ramp Master Superstar LD Jump (one-off, CornFest-style long distance jump)
Legends of Wake (progressive mix of new + old school style
Swivel Showcase (superheat of the top swivelers)
Also, we're switchin' things up -- there will not be traditional scoring for trick, jump and swivel.
GET OUT ON THE WATER.
Already know that watching all the on-water action is going to make you want to get out on the water? Maybe try wakesurfing for the first time? Never fear!!! The crew at Centurion and Twin Lakes Marine will be taking out any friends or families that are interested in trying wakesurfing behind the latest Centurions. Spots are limited and going to book up fast — lock in your spot by CLICKING HERE and completing the survey.
O’Brien will also have TONS of inflatables, magic carpets, etc. for you to play on at the beach (note: though the beach is right next to the main event site, you won’t have best view of the on-water action).
FRI. | 8/16
GRAB YOUR CAPTAIN’S HATS!
The YACHT ROCKETTES are serenading the TL CornFest Crew on Friday night with smooth rock hits from Hall & Oates, Captain and Tenille, Michael McDonald, Toto, Jackson Brown, Player, Ambrosia, and more. The Yacht Rockettes are a female-fronted yacht rock cover band based in Chicago. And, we’re serious about grabbing your boat shoes and sailing gear.
GUYS: You’ll want to grab some khakis and Topsiders. And, feel free to rock a white captain's hat/ blue blazer / white turtleneck ensemble. If you do the latter, that makes you the Captain and at CornFest, everyone can be a Captain if they want.
LADIES: Dig out those floral-print dresses with huge buttons, feather out your hair and grab big round sunglasses. Think Charlie's Angels, Starsky & Hutch.
DJ Robby Allen and DJ Dan Larson will also be laying down some epic mixes all day long.
SAT. | 8/17
REAL INTENSE ON-WATER ACTION
The day will kick-off with the Rising Stars Kids Contest and followed with a performance by THE RENEGADES. Then, DJ Mike Mantas returns with his wild mix of funky fresh 80’s beats and early 90’s flare that will keep you dancing all day like no one’s watching. His tunes will take us through finals across each of the contests, intermixed with the belly flop contest and corn-eating contest.
After awards, a few local ski teams (Wonderlake and Aquanuts) + CornFest athletes will be teaming together for an epic CornFest Super Ski Show. Then, SMART MOUTH will be hitting the stage.
If you’re between the ages of 21-31, think back to the greatest jams of your life…the songs you downloaded illegally from Napster and played on your iPod…epic mixes you burned onto CDs for your friends >> we’re talking the early 2000s! Milwaukee cover band SMART MOUTH will be rocking the TL CornFest scene Saturday night with over two hours of our favorite jams from 2005-2015.
AND, if you're a little older than 31, SMART MOUTH not only plays exactly what the aforementioned want to hear, but they've also figured out a way to keep it familiar to generations before them. Let's put it this way, if you weren't under a rock the last decade or so, you're gonna dig Smart Mouth.
