Wanted to let you know we’re still working and planning for the 40th Annual Marion Popcorn Festival, pending state guidelines. Big thanks to the sponsors who have already signed on again. We’re looking forward to seeing you back in Downtown Marion September 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2020. Everyone stay safe and healthy – and don’t forget to eat plenty of popcorn!
Thanks to everyone involved for making the 2019 Marion Popcorn Festival such a great event. With perfect weather, solid entertainment, and thousands of attendees, it was a lot of fun for people of all ages. We’re already working on the next edition (our 40th!) and can’t wait to see you back in Downtown Marion September 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2020.
We’re really excited about this year’s parade! With the largest number of floats we’ve had in several years and other fun additions and changes, it’s set to be an entertaining event for all ages.
We wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the updated parade route for this year cause nobody should miss the fun. The parade starts by heading west on East Center Street starting at Forest Lawn Boulevard. It then makes a left, turning south on State Street and another left going east on Church Street (in front of the Wyandot Popcorn Museum), before finishing up and disbanding at the fork of Church Street, Mount Vernon Avenue, and S Vine Street.
