The Strawberry Festival is held each year on the first weekend in June. This year the dates are June 1st and 2nd, 2024. Hours are from 10am – 5pm each day. The Strawberry Festival is expected to draw at least 40,000 visitors and will showcase at least 125 food and craft vendors.
All Kimmswick businesses and restaurants will remain open, but vehicle traffic will not be allowed in town between the hours of 8am – 5pm. Parking will be at Windsor Intermediate and High School campus on Highway 61/67 for a small fee. Bus Shuttles will run throughout the day to bring you back and forth. Handicap parking spaces at the Windsor Elementary School in Kimmswick are very limited. There is also parking at the two fields on each side of Hwy K and you can walk in from there. Weather permitting, of course.
Please remember a lot of walking is required for this festival on uneven grass and asphalt surfaces.
The Strawberry Festival will be bursting with fresh strawberries, strawberry shortcake, chocolate-covered strawberries, strawberry cheesecake, and strawberry iced-tea. Enjoy your favorite festival foods, too, like kettle corn, shish kebobs, funnel cakes, onion blossoms, BBQ, hamburgers and hotdogs and roasted corn on the cob along with many others.
Right next to that Booth will be the City of Kimmswick Information Booth, if you have any questions those folks will be there to help you out. The Famous Kimmswick Strawberry Jam, “the only original jam” will also be sold. We have a limited supply and this tasty jam always sells rather quickly so make sure you stop by and purchase some.
There will be craft booths, home and garden vendors, a children’s petting zoo, bounce houses and pony rides for kids. Booth space is still available and we are looking for sponsors to help Kimmswick showcase its community spirit at Strawberry Festival. You can call 636-464-7407 or go to www.cityofkimmswick.org to get an application or find out more information.
