Strawberry Festival, which was sponsored in partnership with Afton’s Memorial Lutheran Church, was started this year as a new event to replace May Fair, which was canceled due to continuous years being faced with inclement weather.

Strawberry Festival offered a variety of activities for families including art vendors, live music, crafts, face painting and even a strawberry shortcake eating contest.
