Our biggest event of the year —
The Cape Elizabeth Strawberry Festival!
June 29 and 30 were the dates this year for our annual kickoff to summer and it was a blast!
Friday night was our fabulous Festival Feast – a lobster bake and a pig roast (lobsters and pig both local), sponsored by many generous neighbors and businesses. And SOLD OUT, once again. In addition to the AMAZING food (traditional lobster bake with clams, potatoes, corn…), the evening included live music (Down East Soul Coalition!), cash bar, a silent auction, and a fabulous strawberry dessert – all in the riding rink at gorgeous Shady Oak Farm. This event pulls in a crowd of 200 patrons each year.
Saturday was the family festival at Maxwell’s Strawberry Fields on Two Lights Rd., Cape Elizabeth. (No tickets or admission fee!) We had great food, children’s crafts and entertainment, artisan vendors, live music throughout the day and agricultural demos; 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Music was courtesy of our wonderful sponsor Ainsworth, Thelin & Raftice P.A. We are also very grateful to Maxwell’s Farm, L.P. Murray & Sons, Tammaro Landscaping, Appletree School and Fox Run Farm for their continued generosity. Please support these terrifically community-minded businesses, along with our many other sponsors; without them, the Strawberry Fest would not be possible.
