There will be flats of fresh, juicy local strawberries for sale at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, and other goodies prepared by volunteers for the popular annual Strawberry Festival June 22.
Expect to find strawberry shortcake, crepes, and strawberry jam.
There will be strawberry and strawberry/rhubarb pies on the bake table — volunteers are busy making them in the church kitchen this week, says Elaine Landray, one of the organizers of the festival. As well, there will be more than 300 each of the very popular beef and turkey pot pies, made during the winter by volunteers and sold frozen. Expect the pies to be snapped up quickly, Landray says.
There is a barbecue, corn on the cob, a silent auction, used books for sale, a bake table, plants, a children’s area and tours of the historic church, which is celebrating its 225th anniversary.
There will be entertainment throughout the day, beginning with a piper to open the celebration at 9 a.m.
The festival, Saturday, June 22, runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Simcoe Street church. Admission is free.
