Volunteers

Time to Clean the Berries!

Volunteers are needed the day before the Strawberry Festival

Starting at 3 pm RAIN OR SHINE!

Meet under the Rotary Pavilion at Nevers Park

The Strawberry Festival would not be complete without the berries of course!  Fresh picked, hand cleaned and ready to go on Saturday morning!  This takes an army of volunteers all gathered with one thing in mind – YOU and the fun you will have the next day – RAIN OR SHINE!

So how does it begin?  It begins on Friday, June 12, 2020 with  2,500 pounds (Yep a literal truck load) of fresh strawberries being delivered to the Rotary Pavilion at Nevers Road Park.  We will need more than 100 people to clean, hull, and pack the berries into our refrigerated truck where they will await their opportunity to become what every berry dreams of…part of the award winning shortcakes at the 2020 Strawberry Festival!  Volunteers are always appreciated and NEEDED to hull and clean berries, as well as assist us in setting up tables/tents and chairs the night before.  Volunteers can call Kathy Daugherty 860-306-4117 or email volunteer@swstrawberryfest.org. Volunteers will be treated to a pizza dinner during the working hours.  Come meet your friends and neighbors and help out at South Windsor largest community event.

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.
