Peddler’s Village Strawberry Festival returns with food, fun and music


Peddler’s Village in Lahaska will present its 43rd annual Strawberry Festival May 4 and 5, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The weekend will include strawberry-themed food and beverages, live music and entertainment, food trucks, and kids’ activities. Fresh-baked strawberry pies, desserts, and merchandise will be available for sale, and a pie-eating contest for adults and children will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Peddler’s Village shops will be open until 8 p.m. on Saturday. Admission and parking are free.

The Strawberry Festival will include lawn games, ax throwing, kids crafts and face painting, pony rides and a petting zoo, viewing of the entries for the cupcake decorating competition at the Visitor & Event Center, and, on Sunday afternoon, pie-eating contests for adults and children.

Live music will include performances by local musicians and performers, with special entertainment by two nationally recognized performers: Martin & Kelly and the Michael Christopher Band. Outdoor food and drinks can be purchased at the outdoor stands, including the Water Wheel Food Tent as well as food trucks, or guests can dine indoors at Village restaurants and eateries for strawberry-themed menu specials.

A complete schedule for the weekend can be found on the Peddler’s Village website, or call 215-794-4000.

Following the Strawberry Festival weekend, Peddler’s Village restaurants will continue to feature strawberry-themed food and beverages every day in May.
