Few things herald the arrival of “Sun and Fun” season, like a plump, juicy, ruby-colored strawberry. Save for maybe a strawberry festival. Bring the family out to celebrate and savor the star of the season at the Fourth Annual Montgomery County Strawberry Festival!
This event will take place rain or shine. Entry to the marketplace is FREE. Tickets are for Rides and Activities only. Toddlers can use the smaller moon bounce when accompanied by parents close by… tickets are not collected for the parents to be close. There will be other toddler activities. There are no rides suitable for infants or babies under two years of age to embark alone.
Even sweeter than the strawberries is the fact that proceeds benefit the WIC and Seniors Matching Dollar Food Buying Program at farmers’ markets around the County. Be a part of this effort to give back by supporting the neediest families in our community, while having a blast with your family!
The kiddos can enjoy pony rides, bounce about on the moon bounce, thrill on fair-type rides, games and;
- Live Music

Taste temptations include;
- FRESH LOCAL Strawberries GALORE!

Our Zero Waste food team gleans unsold event produce for our community kitchen and prepares meals to feed homeless families. Other produce are fed to farm animals. Event food scraps are collected for composting at a local facility for return to the farm. So, do not litter, it’s all recyclable.
