About the WV Strawberry Festival
The West Virginia Strawberry Festival kicked off in 1936 as a way to honor the Strawberry Growers. The Festival gave Strawberry Growers a place to sell their berries. The first Strawberry Festival was celebrated in 1 day and as years passed, the events of the West Virginia Strawberry Festival grew into a full week! We continue to honor the Strawberry Growers from all over the state of West Virginia and traditionally hold the Strawberry Auction on Friday afternoon of Festival Week.
When is it? 2016 dates will be May 14th - 22nd and is held annually the 3rd week of May.
How do I get there? We are located in Buckhannon, WV (nearly the center of the state). Click HERE for driving directions!
What can I experience at the Festival? We have always been known as “An Exciting Family Tradition”. We have 8 fun filled days of events for all ages. We have a Strawberry Gift Shop, a Horse & Carriage Parade, Arts & Craft Show at WV Wesleyan College, Food Vendors selling everything Strawberry, and don’t forget the Carnival is here all week!
