Is there anything that represents summer quite as sweetly as a ripe, fresh strawberry? How about a festival that celebrates the berries themselves, the community, the beauty of nature, and the impending summer season? That’s what you’ll find on May 26 and 27, 2018, at the Delaplane Strawberry Festival.
Held at Sky Meadows State Park near Delaplane, the exciting festivities are fun for the whole family and include hayrides, old-fashioned field games, music, dancing, magic, storytelling, crafts, a petting farm, a bake sale, hiking, face painting, a cake walk, corn hole games, a monkey, and more. You can bring a picnic, enjoy festival fare (including strawberry sundaes, of course), and even take home a flat of juicy strawberries at the end of the day.
The festival is sponsored by Emmanuel Episcopal Church, and proceeds go to benefit outreach ministries within the church as well as grants to worthy organizations in the community, state, and beyond. Tickets to the Strawberry Festival are $25 per car.
A Berry Disclaimer
If you know your gardening trivia, you know that strawberries are usually not available until early or mid-June. What’s more, strawberries were never commercially grown in this part of Virginia. Farmers who grew them hoped for the best, and when they did manage a bumper crop, they shared some of the bounty for the festival. As explained on the Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s website, the festival represents “a nod goodbye to winter, a prayer of thanks for spring, and an acknowledgment of God’s bounty and gifts with the coming of summer.”
