Join The Marketplace at Callingwood for their 19th annual Cornfest

Cornfest is an annual event that is hosted every year in September to help raise funds for the Edmonton Firefighter’s Burn Treatment Society. Treating approximately 200 burn survivors each year in Edmonton, the majority are young children who have been scalded or firefighters that have been injured on the job.

Funds raised are used towards research and development, special equipment and training as well as the Alberta Fire Fighter Burn Camp for Children. This camp takes place every August and hosts 70 campers between the ages of 7-17yrs who are burn survivors.
