Annual Strawberry Festival Returns to West Cape May June 2

The 20th annual Strawberry Festival will once again be held this year in beautiful Wilbraham Park (West Perry & Broadway) in West Cape May on Saturday, June 2 (rain date June 3) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This much anticipated event features over 100 vendors, all celebrating the official fruit of spring! Enjoy the Strawberry Shortcake prepared by the Cape May Technical High School students whose proceeds benefit their after prom party. Vendors will be offering strawberries in wonderful foods: smoothies, kabobs, floats, shaved ice, dips, empanadas, funnel cake, ice cream, lemonade and hand crafted sodas. Our top food vendors will be back with crab cakes, seafood kabobs, pulled pork, hot dogs and sausages.

Shop with our artisans for strawberry pottery, jewelry, T-shirts, honey, wine and lots more! There will also be antiques, collectibles, artwork, clothing, accessories, birdhouses and garden art. Plus, the strawberry-eating turtles will return (provided it’s not too cold) with the Turtle Singer!

Live music will be playing all day long: at 9 a.m. will be Bill the Steel Drum Guy; at 11 a.m. will be Blondage; at 1 p.m. will be Rob Causey; and at 3:15 p.m. will be the Geno White Trio. The crowning of the Strawberry Queen and King will be at 3 p.m. Yes, you could win!

This event is a great way to celebrate the spring and welcome in the summer season!
