Strawberry Fest

Our biggest event of the year —
The Annual Cape Elizabeth Strawberry Festival!

The Cape Farm Alliance’s annual Strawberry Festival Weekend is a wonderful celebration of local food, farming, art, music and more. This two-day event is always the fourth weekend of June – when the strawberries are ripe!  This year the dates are June 23rd and 24th.

We begin the weekend on Friday night with a lobster bake and local pig roast, hosted by Shady Oak Farm, and sponsored by many generous neighbors and businesses. The dinner features live music, local beer and wine, a silent auction, and a fabulous strawberry dessert! This event pulls in a crowd of over 150 patrons each year. Tickets for this very popular dinner are required and always sell out. They’re available at Alewive’s Brook Farm and at Jordan’s Farm Market on Wells Rd. Come by and grab your tickets along with fresh Maine food for your supper too!  If you’re not local, you can buy tickets online.


June 23rd

6 – 9 pm:  Lobster Bake and Pig Roast at Shady Oak Farm; $35 per person, and featuring a full feast, live music (Downeast Soul Coalition!!), a silent auction and cash bar! (Purchase tickets here.)

June 24th

10 am – 3 pm:  Family Festival at Maxwell’s Strawberry Fields, Two Lights Rd., Cape Elizabeth (no admission fee!)

Great food, children’s crafts and entertainment, artisan vendors, live music throughout the day (Earth Jams/Matt Loosigan, Downeast Soul Coalition, Pete Withal & Per Hanson Duo), and agricultural demos too! (Music is courtesy of our wonderful sponsor Ainsworth, Thelin & Raftice P.A. We are also very grateful to Purpoodock Golf Club, L.P. Murray & Sons, Tammaro Landscaping and Garbage to Garden for their generous support. Please support these terrifically community-minded companies, along with our many other sponsors; without them, the Strawberry Fest would not be possible.)
