Strawberry Festival is Saturday in downtown Cullman

CULLMAN — A strawberry-filled day is planned for this weekend in downtown Cullman.

Saturday’s annual Cullman Strawberry Festival promises plenty of strawberries but also a whole bushel of hometown fun and exciting events. Now in its 83rd year, the one-day event is Alabama’s longest-running strawberry festival.

The festival is from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Festhalle Farmers Market and Depot Park, 309 1st Avenue NE.

In addition, Senior Day at the Strawberry Festival takes place Friday at Festhalle from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. This free event will be filled with music, dancing, skits, bingo and games!! Free lunch will be provided to the first 300 seniors.

As far back as 1898, the strawberry has been an agricultural calling card for Cullman. To celebrate, the town comes together for this one-day event. Local farmers will be on hand selling their produce, and most importantly, fresh, locally grown strawberries.

The Strawberry Festival also includes arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, a doggy “pawgeant” and after party, a baking competition, a kid’s area with games and inflatables (fee to participate) and entertainment by artists including The Georgia Thunderbolts, season 19 winner of American Idol Chayce Beckham and headliner Gin Blossoms.

First held in 1939, Cullman’s Strawberry Festival continues to be one of the state’s largest and longest-running strawberry festivals to date.
