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.
