2016 Strawberry Festival

The Strawberry Festival is an event the entire family can enjoy. The gardens, shops and paths through Peddler’s Village will feature strawberry-themed attractions and treats, perfect for visitors of all ages. With more than 75 vendors and artisans lining the Street Road Green, the Strawberry Festival has something to offer for everyone. 

If you’re going to this year’s Strawberry Festival, be sure to visit The Lucky Cupcake Company’s Village Bakery for strawberry shortcakes, strawberry rhubarb pies, strawberry crumb pies, strawberry cheesecakes and more. Their treats are so sweet, in fact, that they’ve been featured on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.

You can also stop by Skip’s Candy Corner for freshly dipped chocolate strawberries, the Ruby Boyd Tent for strawberry smoothies or Fromage Deux for seasonal Strawberry Festival crepes. There’s something to satisfy any palate at the Strawberry Festival, so bring your appetite and enjoy the decadent delights.

Along with its vendors, the festival includes a Strawberry Fields Fun Area for Kids with live music, moon bounces, bubble making areas, face painting, kids’ crafts, sand art and a picnic area.
