Cedarburg Strawberry Festival : June 24th & 25th, 2017
Strawberries, those luscious summer fruits that few of us can resist, will once again take center stage during Cedarburg’s annual Strawberry Festival on June 24th and 25th, 2017. The berries, most of which are locally grown at Schmit’s Berry Farm in Mequon, pop up in every food imaginable Look for strawberry brats, strawberry chicken wraps, pies, shortcakes, crepes, slushes and, of course, chocolate-covered monsters to eat as you go. These, and a multitude of other summer favorite foods, can be found in the festival food court by the Community Center, at Cedar Creek Settlement, and also on the corner of Washington and Mill, just south of our downtown Cedarburg inn.
Wash down sweet and savory treats with a glass or two of Cedar Creek Winery’s own Strawberry Blush, available by the glass from the local winery as well as other locations throughout the festival, and take the weight off your feet, and listen to music provided by numerous live bands in the downtown area.
More than 250 artists from across the Midwest will have their work on display at “Arts on the Avenue” and visitors will have fun wandering from stall to stall looking for mementos to take home from the selection of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, woodwork and more.
Stroll over to Cedar Creek Park and adopt a rubber duck for the CedarQuacker 500 that takes place both Saturday and Sunday afternoons and check out the classic Model Ts on display and other family-friendly events. Or hop on a hay wagon and ride to the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts to see who’s won the Strawberry Challenge.
This free, family-oriented festival attracts up to 100,000 people to Cedarburg each June. It’s always a lot of fun and definitely worth planning a trip to our boutique Cedarburg, WI hotel for!
