Nothing says SUMMER like the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival!

There is something for all ages and interests during the fun-filled, busy weekend!  A grand-parade, classic car show and parade, several music stages, vendor booths, alternative carnival, local artists, and street dances are all part of the fun.  Toss in pancake breakfasts, a rocking beer garden, a fun run, the firefighter's challenge, the Miss Lucy Dinner, and loads of children's activities. You will have something to do morning til night!
