Families are invited to join us June 15-17 this year for the annual Strawberry Days!
Strawberry Days began with a picnic among neighbors 120 years ago to get reacquainted. It has grown into a premier destination event on the third weekend in June every year in Glenwood Springs.
Back in the early 20th century, the strawberry was selected as the featured fruit of the event to promote local fruit growers. Local miners and their families were given special rates to attend. The strawberries features at the festival are still Colorado-grown and serves as a highlight of summer festivals in Glenwood Springs.
The festival features live music & main stage entertainment, the crowning of the 2018 Miss Strawberry Days and Fashion Show; the FamilyFest area with interactive, entertaining and creative experiences for the kids, FREE STRAWBERRIES, cool games & prizes, a Fine Arts and Crafts Fair, Food Court, an old-fashioned Carnival, a Parade down Grand Avenue and of course, we’ll serve FREE strawberries and ice cream on Saturday after the parade, just like we’ve been doing for the past century!
