South Berwick Strawberry Festival

by

Always the last Saturday in June, this year the festival will be on Saturday, June 25th. The South Berwick Strawberry Festival officially kicks off summer for the quaint, southern Maine town of South Berwick. All over town, one can see the bright red, white and green strawberry flags that not only line the main streets, but can also be seen flying from many houses. The day is filled with food, entertainment, games and crafts.
For thirty-six consecutive years, hundreds of volunteers from South Berwick have come together for this South Berwick tradition. As always, official Festival activities will take place only on the grounds of Central School on Main Street in the center of town. A stop at the Strawberry Festival Information Booth is a must to find out more about the day’s schedule for entertainers as well as all the various activities are located.
Strawberry shortcakes have always been a favorite of the Festival. They will begin serving at 9 a.m. until it is all gone!. Last year over 250 cases of fresh strawberries, 80 gallons of whipped cream and over 330 dozen biscuits were used.
In addition to shortcakes and cheesecakes there is also a huge Food Court. Pancake breakfast, hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, cold drinks, frozen lemonade, fried dough chicken BBQ, Sandwich wraps, teriyaki nachos, fruit cups and cotton candy.
Throughout the day, a variety of entertainers from around the area will be performing on two stages set up around the grounds. Over 100 juried artisans will be on hand to display and sell their hand-made wares, including clothing, jewelry, pottery, photographs, paintings furniture and more.
