The Mattituck Strawberry Festival and Father’s Day on the North Fork

The month of June has a lot of great events coming up and we don’t want you to miss out! Father’s Day is this weekend and everyone out east is celebrating. Instead of giving him a tie or a golf club, why not take Dad to a winery this weekend?  You can even bring the whole family and enjoy the strawberry season at it’s prime! The 59th annual Mattituck Lion’s Strawberry Festival will be held from June 13th-16th. There will be live music, rides, over 120 vendors for the craft fair, and a wide variety of strawberry desserts! Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is celebrating the abundance of strawberries by serving them in granola yogurt parfaits or mixed with other fresh fruits. Yum!

59th Annual Strawberry Festival – June 13th-16th, 2013

dsc_3830dsc_4148Bring your family and friends to one of the North Fork’s best summer festivals in the height of the strawberry season.

“By late June on the North Fork the strawberry crop is reaching its peak and bursting with flavor. On Father’s Day weekend, at the peak of the strawberry harvest, the Mattituck Lions Club brings the community together for a special weekend of fun and purpose. Whether you’re here year-round, are a seasonal resident or are drawn here by the Festival, you’re in for a wonderful time while raising money for local non-profits.

Dig into the strawberry shortcake, sample the strawberries dipped in chocolate, try the strawberries any way you like them. Head over to the rest tent to enjoy live music.  Then find out what over 100 arts and craft vendors have available for sale.

Cheer as the new Strawberry Queen is crowned.  Experience the midway rides. Taste foods from around the world. The fun keeps going after the sun sets, so bring lawn chairs and enjoy the fireworks on Thursday and Friday.” – mattituckstrawberryfestival.org

If you can manage a quick mid week getaway Shorecrest still has a couple of rooms available on the 12th and 13th with a 20% discount on a 2 night stay, 10% on one night – to use towards the price of your ticket!

Greenport Holiday Festival on Long Island’s North Fork

The holiday season in the historic maritime village of Greenport, just 5 minutes drive from Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast in Southold began Saturday, November 27th with the arrival of Santa and the lighting of the holiday tree in Mitchell Park. Every weekend through to the New Year events are scheduled in the village for children and adults, including the opportunity for shopping, great dining (such as Noah’s and The Frisky Oyster) plus concerts, house tours, films, and much more for your entertainment.

The season culminates with a bang – literally – on New Year’s Eve with a party and celebration at the carousel in Mitchell Park, the traditional raising of the anchor, and spectacular fireworks over Greenport Harbor. For a complete list of events you can visit the Greenport Holiday Festival website and for photographs and more pictures, the Suffolk Times on line newspaper has a comprehensive spread on Greenport and the festival activities this week.

Fireworks over the Harbor in Greenport

 

Visitors to Greenport and the North Fork discover a treasure trove of delights for all appetites; gifts for everyone on your list; decorations and gift wraps; antique stores and museum shops. All the villages along the length of Rout 25, one of the two east to west roads from Riverhead to Orient Point offer their own unique holiday festivities.

Each year the Southold Historical Society hosts a candlelight tour of the Historic District in December to coincide with the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Associations Holiday House Tour; also in Southold is the Custer Institute Observatory, which is open every Saturday evening for star gazing or catching the latest meteor shower. Southold is famous for its dark skies and lack of light pollution and star gazing is a favorite of Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast or rental house guests from our beach on the Long Island Sound.

Speaking of things to do on the North Fork during the holidays and winter, we cannot forget to mention the wineries and vineyards. Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is making its own wine this year with Lisa and Anthony Sannino of Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard on Peconic Lane in Cutchogue, the only custom wine making facility on the North Fork of Long Island. We are just printing up our first label and hope to have some bottles ready to serve and gift in time for Christmas this year. Shorecrest and the other members of the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Association (NFBBA) also offer to our guests an exclusive winery discount card, with special offers on purchases and complimentary tastings at over 20 wineries.

So come along and enjoy the festivities during the holiday season; we are open for visitors Christmas day and the week between Christmas and New Year, and every weekend throughout the winter. We look forward to welcoming you to Shorecrest soon.

Wishing you a very happy holiday season and healthy and Successful New Year
