There will be strawberry desserts—strawberry crepes and strawberry shortcake—for $3 and strawberry slushies for $1. Want more strawberry goodness? Come early for a whole strawberry cake at $20 or strawberry pie at $6!
More Than Strawberries
But, there will be more than good eats at the family friendly event. Entertainment includes the Hi-Horse Cloggers, the Cloverleaf Square Dancers, The Greater Love, a gospel group, Stacey Roach, bluegrass and gospel, and The Deanes, bluegrass and gospel from Greene County, as well as Gary Shifflett & The Shenandoah Shakers.
Additionally, there will be crafters, vintage cars and fun and games for children on Historic Court Square in downtown Stanardsville. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a wonderful event (and wonderful berry) in Greene County! All proceeds from the event go to Stanardsville United Methodist Church’s local missions.
