 Monroe CT Strawberry Festival -- A Very Berry Blast!


Mark your calendar!  One of the best strawberry festivals in Fairfield County,  the Monroe Congregational Church’s 41st annual Strawberry Festival,  will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, on the Monroe Green on Route 111.   It’s a must-attend event.

The festival, “an old-fashioned church festival,” includes a juried craft and fine arts show with more than 100 crafters and artists plus children's games and live entertainment.


Strolling through the arts and crafts will get you hungry to try some fresh picked strawberries in

  • Strawberry shortcake
  • Whole berry pies
  • Strawberry smoothies

….and…of course

  • Chocolate dipped strawberries…. Yum…!

 




You will also find strawberry jams and strawberry souvenir items as well as hamburgers and hot dogs.

Admission to Monroe's Strawberry Festival is FREE and so is the parking.

Hours are Saturday from 10 to 5 and Sunday from 12 to 5.

Corey -- Should be great and the weather is supposed be equally great.

Toni -- That would definitely be worth the trip!

Aj -- Absolutely. A powerful combination and a real crowd pleaser.

Bob -- I think strawberries are low-cal, aren't they?

George - I am definitely going. The strawberries will be gone very soon here then it's on to the blueberries!

Joan -- I don't know anyone who doesn't like anything with strawberries!!
