America’s favorite berry is the star of this old-fashioned festival at Peddlers’ Village

On April 30 and May 1, Peddler’s Village will host its 42nd Annual Strawberry Festival. Enjoy America’s favorite berry hundreds of ways: dipped in chocolate, fried in fritters, baked in pies and pastries, preserved in jams and jellies, churned into butter.

Admission and parking is FREE at this good old-fashioned family festival. The whole gang will find something to do, from pie-eating contests to listening to an array of country-style and quirky musical acts. There will also be craft stations for kids around the Village. Whether the sun shines or the rain pours, the festival must go on!

The country-classic festival will feature an array of local artisans selling hand-crafted products. Don’t miss the bluegrass band on Saturday! Tented carts will be scattered throughout the Village, all offering the different strawberry delights—don’t forget to try a creamy strawberry smoothie—the perfect start to summer!

Head to The Countryside for some old-fashioned fun!
