56th Annual Strawberry Festival...looks like fun!

STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL: 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 – all 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 Friday and Saturday. *
* Much of the Festival fun is free, thanks to the efforts of our many volunteers. When you do spend, you help the Matitituck Lions advance their year-round community service efforts. Learn more about our projects to help the community *
