South Windsor’s 38th Annual Strawberry Fest and Craft Fair

38 Years! Amazing! Planning is well underway for South Windsor’s 38th annual Strawberry Fest and Craft Fair!

Literally, 100s of volunteers are readying for the crowds; food vendors are geared up and eager to serve you, and this year, Connecticut’s premier band, the Savage Brothers is ready to entertain!

38 Years, how time flies – much has changed since the beginning – but at least two things have remained the same; the South Windsor Republican Town Committee members proudly organize and run this event; and we still serve the best strawberry shortcake around.

South Windsor’s Strawberry Festival started 38 years ago at the Berry Patch farm. It has become the single most attended event in town, and for good reason. Admission is free, parking is free, many of the activities for the kids are free, the crowds are spectacular and the many volunteers work hard to make your day fun filled and one to remember.

This festival has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 38 years, once attended by a few hundred; the festival now is enjoyed by nearly 10,000 on a nice day!

Come join the fun! We promise it will be a day filled with fun!

As many of you have already know, the 2020 SW Strawberry Festival has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The committee prides itself on putting the safety of all patrons, staff, and exhibitors first and foremost. We are following the recommendations and executive orders of our governor and town staff. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021. Please - stay safe, wash hands - and remember - we are in this together! ...

As you may all have guessed, Strawberry Fest 2020 is being cancelled. Our 39 year run is being interrupted due to the Coronavirus. As a committee, our first priority is to keep everyone safe. We are attempting to work with our vendors to deliver strawberry shortcake in a different way, one that will benefit the community while keeping social distancing guidelines in mind. The bottom line – health and safety must come first. Stay tuned for further updates. Stay Safe and wash your hands!! ...

It’s unfortunate however considering the circumstances it was a decision that couldn’t be avoided. Looking forward already to 2021.

I so look forward to going to this every year..such disappointment

Thank you for the consideration!

Every 6 feet let some one in to pick

Sad, but appreciated.

Thanks for handling this so eloquently.
