Strawberry Fest

Join us for our biggest event of the year — The Cape Elizabeth Strawberry Festival!

The Cape Farm Alliance’s annual Strawberry Festival Weekend is a celebration of local food, products, art, music and more. This two-day event is always the last weekend of June, and there are new local vendors, local artists, local craftsmen, and local foods to discover every year!

We begin the weekend on Friday night with a lobster bake and local pig roast, hosted by Shady Oak Farm. The dinner features live music, local beer and wine, a silent auction, and (of course) a fabulous, freshly made 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. Stay tuned for details on when and where you can purchase yours.

The following morning, head down to Maxwell’s fields on Two Lights Road. There you’ll find an enticing array of family-friendly activities, vendors and artists, delicious local food, and a tractor ride around the whole event. [Please note that strawberry picking will be in whichever of Maxwell’s fields are most abundant that day – often picking is not available in the fields at the Festival site, but down the road on Rte. 77. Picking signs will be posted that day to direct berry lovers.]
