Strawberry Festival 2017

Strawberries

Join us at our annual Strawberry Festival

Saturday, June 10, 2017, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

Experience the Redeemer Spirit and enjoy the very best strawberries in the world, hand picked by Episcopalians!  This event has been a community favorite for more than forty years.

 

In June of each year, when the strawberry crop is at its peak, a group of stalwart parishioners gathers at a local farm and handpicks bushels of berries.  The berries are then washed, hulled, and stored for the next day’s big event – the Strawberry Festival, a yearly fundraiser enjoyed by parishioners, as well as hundreds of neighbors from Bannockburn, Glen Echo, Cabin John, and beyond.  In addition to strawberry shortcake and sundaes, the delectable fare includes grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and soft drinks.  While kids enjoy the moonbounce, face painting, and games outside, grown-ups peruse the baked goods, books, recordings, household items, and clothing on sale inside.  At the Silent Auction, one can bid on a wide array of unique items and opportunities – from lessons in Greek to a basket of treats for your spoiled dog – from a rector-guided tour of an art museum to a week-long stay at a parishioner’s summer get-away.
