Olivia, MN offers a variety of attractions!
At first glance, many associate Olivia as only being the home to the World’s Largest Ear of Corn Monument. Although this serves as our primary attraction, there’s so much more Olivia has to offer!
While our history is deeply rooted in our agriculture community and we’re proud to be a world leader in agricultural innovation, you’ll find that there’s no shortage of sites to see outside of our farmlands, fields, and our nine seed research facilities. Wherever your interests lay, still be sure to make those attractions a part of your itinerary so you can see for yourself why we’re the largest Minnesota corn producer and what the Corn Capital of the World looks like!
Beyond our agriculture attractions our seven parks, various historic sites, numerous restaurants, and so much more has continued to bring back tourists year after year! Whether you’re here to visit our 50-foot Corn Monument or relax with a round of golf or a swim in the BOLD School indoor pool – there’s an attraction in Olivia for everyone. And there is also much to offer in the nearby surrounding communities as well!
Below is just a sampling of all that the Corn Capital of the World has to offer. With a town of over 2,500 friendly residents who pride themselves on neighborly hospitality, we at Olivia can’t wait to give you a warm welcome!

Corn Capital Days
The last weekend in July we celebrate our agricultural heritage during our annual Corn Capital Days.
Our parks boast a variety of activities for visitors. There are horseshoe pits, tennis court, softball fields and playground equipment. Learn more about the City of Olivia Parks.
Need a place to just sit and relax? Try our brand new public library located just south off Highway 212 on Tenth Street. The library offers free internet access, tourist information, stacks of magazines and newspapers and even an easy chair or two.
If you have your “sticks” along, don’t miss playing a round of golf at the Olivia Golf Club. A nine hole course that is extremely well maintained and challenging. Narrow fairways are lined with old trees that penalize errant shots. There is water on two holes including the signature par 3 fifth hole. And, yes, there are sand bunkers, so have your sand wedge available.
BOLD School in Olivia offers an indoor pool at 701 9th Street South. Reach out to them for details at 320-523-1031 x 2111.
