It’s the 33rd Annual Owego Strawberry Festival June 14-15

Lots of excitement is planned for this year’s Festival! “Straw Dawgs Strut Their Stuff” Contest, Children’s Bounce House, a 5K Race and Kids’ 1 Mile Run , a Miss/Mrs. Strawberry Pageant, Wine & Beer Tasting, Rubber Ducky Derby, a Firemen’s Hose Race and lots of great entertainment.

Enjoy plenty of great food and a fantastic array of arts and crafts.  Over 150 vendors and artisans will line the streets downtown.  Visit the unique and awesome shops in Owego.  Our selection of fine restaurants and shops are filled with distinctive merchandise and is sometimes referred to as “the best kept secret in the Southern Tier!”

Since the debut of the Owego Strawberry Festival 33 years ago, hundreds of thousands of people have been drawn to downtown Owego to experience the charm of this annual festival.  I urge everyone to come early and be ready for a full day of fun and excitement!

The setting along the Susquehanna is perfect for a lazy day munching on big, red ripe strawberries!


Where: Owego (Tioga County)

When: June 14-15, 2013
