When you come to the Tour de Corn, the ride is only part of the fun! Each year, East Prairie and surrounding communities are thrilled to roll out a warm welcome to Tour de Corn riders.
On Friday night before the event, riders and families can enjoy the annual Main Street Party (hosted by EP's own Downtown Revitalization Committee) -- complete with tasty treats such as crawfish & BBQ, homemade crafts and goods, family events, entertainment and all the hospitality you can handle! Or, you can even get warmed up for the TdC ride with the annual Husker 5K run that same Friday evening.
And be sure to stick around after the ride as the East Prairie Chamber of Commerce hosts a variety of fun Sweet Corn Festival events.

If you total our 13 years times -- 33 miles for each year -- we have ridden in Mississippi County at total of 429 miles. There must be some magic in that old blacktop road(s) that keep bringing us back. Folks, this is the creme de la creme of all rides. These organizers know how to run a ride.--- Larry McGuire
Had a blast. My first year. Did the 65. Was a beautiful day, a great route, well supported by so many friendly people. Will definitely be back next year.--- Neil Carr
