55th Annual North Fork Strawberry Festival

Strawberry lovers unite!  The North Fork strawberries will be in full fruit and ready to be enjoyed by everyone at the 55th Annual Strawberry Festival.  Whether you like strawberry shortcake, strawberries dipped in chocolate or just plain strawberries, they will all be available for everyone to enjoy.  This year’s Strawberry Festival will begin on Friday evening, June 19th and continue through Sunday, June 21st at 5 P.M. 

After you have had your fill on strawberries, there is even more enjoyment.  Over 120 arts and crafts vendors will be on-site to entice you with everything from knitwear, jewelry, hand-made crafts and more!  Make sure to pack a blanket in the car, because at 5 P.M. on Saturday evening, the North Fork Folk Festival will be in full swing with six bands to entertain you.  Included in this year’s line-up are Gathering Time, Debra Lynne & Chris Tursi, Lucky 13, Red River Ramblers, Josh Joffen, and Joe Iadanza.  Lastly, no Strawberry Festival would be complete without fireworks and they are planned for both Friday and Saturday evenings at 9 P.M. 

Complimentary parking and shuttle bus service is offered from Martha Clara Vineyard, located on Route 48 in Mattituck.

Greenport East End Lighthouse Tour

One of the delights of the summer season is to be able to take a cruise on the waters of Long Island and enjoy viewing the many lighthouses.  Our favorite lighthouse cruise is on board of the “Peconic Star II”.  The first East End Lighthouse tour of the season is scheduled to depart on Saturday, June 27th at 3:30 P.M.  Guests will enjoy a cruise on the waters of eastern Long Island and Gardiner’s Bay.  

During the cruise, you will learn about the maritime history of the area, including that of Plum Island and Gardiner’s Island.  For those history buffs, the cruise will be following the routes of American and British war ships in their 1812-1814 naval engagement.  Additionally, one may remember that Gardiner’s Island is where Captain Kidd buried his treasure.  Perhaps it may be discovered!  

Five lighthouses will be viewed along the way including Orient Point, Plum Island, Little Gull Island, Race Rock, and Long Beach Bar lighthouses.  The cruise includes dinner and Long Island wine.    Cost per person is $95.00 and space is limited.  What better way to enjoy a summer afternoon!
