Strawberry Festival 2014

Elmwood IL Strawberry Fest 2013


Strawberry Festival 26th Year

- Saturday June 7th 2014

Elmwood has been hosting a Strawberry Festival on the first Saturday in June for over twenty years. It is a wonderful event, filled with great strawberry treats, musical entertainment, children's activities, and crafts. It is held in Elmwood's downtown central park. Elmwood, hometown to Lorado Taft, sculptor of "The Pioneers" statue.

This year the festival will again offer a marvellous day of family fun and strawberry treats. Strawberries grown closer to God's earth than all other fruits, with a heavenly taste above all others.


The great Strawberry Treats I have enjoyed, include strawberry pizza, strawberry shortcake, strawberry shake ups, strawberry milkshakes, strawberry soda pop, strawberry jam.

--- I've enjoyed them all. Yes fresh ripe strawberries, as well.

Food Tent: 10 am to 6 pm (grilled pork chops, brats, hot dogs, bar b que, potato chips, lemonade, iced tea, & water)

--- I think, I could eat my way through the day.
