Each year in June, Crawfordsville and Montgomery County residents come together to create the largest local event of the year, the Crawfordsville Strawberry Festival. For three days on June 11–12–13, 2021, the grounds of the historic Lane Place will be transformed into a strawberry themed festival featuring food, fun, arts & crafts and top notch entertainment for all ages. It’s truly a family friendly atmosphere designed to bring back those fond memories of a time when the pace of life was slower and families were able to spend time relaxing together. All are invited to come and experience the festival first hand.
It is all hands on deck at the annual Crawfordsville Strawberry Festival and they sincerely hope you will be a part of the excitement at the historic Lane Place in Crawfordsville. One of the areas that they take great pride in is the entertainment venue. The stage area is alive with a variety of entertainers almost nonstop during our open hours. They have bands, singers, dancers and special tributes throughout the day including featured performers on Friday and Saturday evenings. Be sure and check those out.
There’s something for everyone and it’s all FREE at the Crawfordsville Strawberry Festival. From car and tractor shows to an arts and crafts area, food court and commercial booths all available in the vendor’s area they have it all, and what would a festival be without a children’s area? They just happen to have a great area set aside for children of all ages. The majority of the booths are manned by local children’s organizations and not for profits. Some of the children’s attractions are a ring toss, bean bag toss, fence painting, sand art, miniature golf, sketches, frog flipper, dippin’ dots, bounce house, face painting, pony ride and many more. There will even be a magician making an appearance or two during the festival. All booths are by ticket only.
One of the most popular events is the 16th Annual Strawberry Festival Queen & Junior Royalty Contest with many area individuals participating in this annual event. It’s open for boys and girls ages 6 to 10 and high school girls residing full time in Montgomery County. Due to COVID-19, this year’s program was again virtual and was held on Saturday, April 17, 2021. There are also events for the more athletically inclined such as softball and tennis tournaments, a 5K run and even a golf scramble.
So come one, come all and enjoy the splendor and merriment that will ensue at the Crawfordsville Strawberry Festival on the grounds of the historic Lane Place coming very soon!
