Strawberry Festival Kimmswick 2018
The big draw to this festival is the popular Original Kimmswick Strawberry Jam that sells out nearly every year and will be available at the Visitors Center.
There will be over 200 craft, food, vendor and corporate booths. All of our wonderful shops and restaurants will be open and will be selling strawberry themed items.
New this year will be a Live Broadcast from the station KBDZ 93.1 with the popular radio personality JC Corcoran from 11am to 1pm. Come and meet JC and maybe win yourself Cardinal’s tickets. This booth will also be next to the Information and Jam selling stand.
