Strawberry Fest

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

June 28 & 29 are the dates for 2019 – our 11th Annual!  It’s always a really fun way to kick off summer in Maine!  Get in touch with Impy Altznauer soon if you’d like to join us as a vendor or volunteer:

Here are the details: Friday night is our fabulous Festival Feast – a lobster bake and a pig roast (lobsters and pig both local), sponsored by many generous neighbors and businesses. In addition to the AMAZING food, the evening will include live music (Earth Tone String Band), 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 and usually sells out, so get your tickets ASAP, at Jordan’s Farm on Wells Road, Alewive’s Brook Farm (Old Ocean House Road), or online through Brown Paper Tickets.

Saturday is the family festival at Maxwell’s Strawberry Fields on Two Lights Road, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. (No tickets or admission fee!)  We’ll have some great food vendors (C-Salt, Crepe Elizabeth, Mr. Tuna, O Oysters, Mainely Burgers, Salt Box Cafe, Maine-ly Meatballs), children’s crafts and entertainment (hula hopping with Tracy Tingley!), artisan vendors, live music throughout the day and agricultural demos. Music is 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 (see the list below); without them, the Strawberry Fest would not be possible.

Here’s the musical line-up for Saturday:

  • 10:00-11:30, Earth Jams/Matt Loosigian
  • 11:45-1:15, Earthtone String Band
  • 1:30-3:00, Front Porch Band
