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.

Happy February 1, 2021 -
Generally we would be opening our website for crafters - but like everyone else, we are waiting for guidance from the state. It is certainly our hope to hold the Strawberry Festival this year. Most likely we will not have an answer until April 1. Please hold tight, keep your fingers crossed and STAY SAFE!

Tonight is the "Strawberry Moon". - A full moon in June is considered a Strawberry Moon because is coincides with strawberry harvest.
Sadly, due to the pandemic, we will not be harvesting this year for the South Windsor Strawberry Festival, don't forget to visit Dzen's to get a quart to take home. Hope to see everyone next year!! Stay safe
