In the late 1860’s, the north wall of the church was so badly sprung and in need of being beautified, that the Ladies of Rock Creek Church established the Strawberry Festival in an effort to raise the funds for this and many other improvements. For the last 151st years, the annual Strawberry Festival, once celebrated for several days, is now held on a special Saturday in June.
Today, we continue the history where both parishioners and community members come together to celebrate the beginning of summer. St. Paul’s erects tents to cover the food (including, of course, fresh strawberries and strawberry shortcake) and the items offered for sale—baked goods, hand-crafted items, jewelry, plants, and more.
Join us on Saturday, June 17th from 4 to 8 p.m. for a day filled with activities for everyone that brings together the community while enjoying food, games, laughter, music and much more as we kick off to summer. Come show your community support and join us for the Strawberry Festival 2017!
