There are two general types of strawberry festivals 1) community festivals, usually organized by a church, school, local Council or a town and 2). Strawberry festival held at and by a farm. They are different in what they offer, so they are grouped separately. (of course not all states and areas have both. And following the festival listings are links to our easy to follow directions about making strawberry jam, freezing strawberries, strawberry pies and much more.

Community Strawberry Festivals

  • Binsted Strawberry Fair - Sunday 21st July 2019, from 2pm to 4.30pm.

The Strawberry Fair is held in a beautiful 19th-century threshing barn and the Strawberry Fair fields near Arundel, West Sussex. . It is a great place to meet others who love rural Sussex, to buy donated local produce including herbs and shrubs from Binsted and Walberton and Fleurie Nurseries, and to enjoy a range of farming and local interest and craft stands. There are also Strawberry Teas, ice creams, childrens games, sheep and baby chicks. And some of Sussex's finest folk musicians play traditional tunes in and around the barnyard.  There’s lots for families: face painting and children’s games are regular features. Your children may already love Lucky Dips but have they tried Whack the Rat, Fish the Duck, or Toss the Cone?  Don’t expect any bouncy castles or canned music though, this is a traditional country fair! With a small group of traditional folk musicians playing in the entrance to the lovely old flint threshing barn where cream teas with strawberries are served, cakes and strawberry scones and other local produce are sold, and the raffle prizes are on display till the vicar calls out the winning numbers; then off to celebrate in the strawberry coloured Pimms Tent.  There are village fete standards such as sales of books, bottle tombola, bric-a-brac, and ices. More unusual are the herbs shrubs and perennials on sale, and the Animal Corners with magic pony, donkeys, turkeys, chicks, owls. Craft demonstrations last year included cane chair making and pole lathe turning; new in 2017 were traditional witches’ broom-making, and the chance for children to learn how to make Bird Feeders from natural materials gathered in Tortington Common, part of Binsted Woods Local Wildlife Site.
