Cods in the corn

What better venue to enjoy a live musical concert than the vast acreage at the O’Keefe Ranch

There are no neighbours to bother when Cod Gone Wild starts jamming in the O’Keefe Ranch corn field Saturday.

Crazy in the Corn with Cod Gone Wild is the final corn-themed event for the month of August, following three corn maze and corn roast evening activities.

Ranch manager Glen Taylor has created a space available in the corn field for special events such as this, with about a half-acre of lawn surrounded by towering corn stalks on all sides.

Cod Gone Wild is known for its Celtic inspired sounds — a blend of folk, rock, jazz, and classical music. The band performs to crowds of all ages who like to stomp their feet and kick up their boots. The energy is infectious and their sound resonates with all audiences.

Cattlemen’s Club Restaurant will prepare a ranch-size meal of pulled pork on a kaiser bun, fresh corn on the cob, coleslaw, and apple crisp. The cash bar will have both Lavina Estate red and white wines and Crannog Ales available for purchase. Dinner and drinks will be available right next to the grassy dance floor.

“We are ready for a fun night of dinner and dancing,” Taylor said. “This event is a great way to celebrate our 150th, and like all of our events, we hope to bring out a few new people who have never been to the ranch before or haven’t visited for a while. It’s part of our mandate to make the ranch accessible to the public through special events like this and we want to share this unique space with everyone. And every dollar we raise at our special events ensures that we continue to keep our doors open, and do our part to preserve Vernon’s history.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $39.95 plus GST and are available for purchase online at or by calling 250-542-7868. Tickets are not available at the door. In the event of poor weather, the show will be moved to the pavilion.
