Celebrate berry sweet traditions at the Peddler’s Village 40th Annual Strawberry Festival! Indulge in a weekend of Strawberry Treats, Eats & Family Fun on Saturday & Sunday, May 19 & 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Strawberry Treats & Eats
First stop is the Village General Store for fresh berries, freshly baked strawberry pies, strawberry butters, jams, jellies & salsas, Strawberry Shortcake Doughnuts, and new this year: Strawberry Kabobs! Pies sell fast, so don't forget to pre-order and pick up at the Festival!
Stroll through the Village gardens to discover even more strawberry goodness from strawberry crumb pies, strawberry cheesecakes and tarts to strawberry cupcakes, donuts, warm muffins, freshly dipped chocolate strawberries, water ice and smoothies. Crisp strawberry fritters made before your eyes are a Festival must. After dessert, it's time to eat (don't worry, we won't tell!). Choose amongst our many full- or quick-service dining options. Snack and sip under the shade of an umbrella in our new Food on the Green.
Family Fun & Entertainment
Sharing the green is our Strawberry Fields Fun Area: an interactive kids’ oasis with inflatable bounces, sand art, face painting and crafts. The Main Stage features live dance performances and musical entertainment in all genres. Gather round the Main Green Balcony to watch adults and kids compete in our annual Strawberry Pie Eating Contest at 3:00 p.m. each day. Sign up if you dare!
