The 2020 Vashon Island Strawberry Festival

July 17, 18 & 19 2020

NEW! Festival Starts Friday! Booths Open Friday from 2pm to 9pm!

Nothing says SUMMER like the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival!

Welcome to Strawberry Festival! Vashon Island’s 111th Annual Strawberry Festival is a celebration of Vashon’s agricultural, artistic and cultural heritage and showcases all that makes Vashon Island unique.

The Strawberry Festival has a faithful following with an average attendance of 30,000 for the weekend! A grand-parade, classic car parade, several performance stages, a variety of vendor booths, kids’ activities, local featured artists, and street dances are all part of the fun. Toss in a rocking beverage garden serving local spirits, pancake breakfasts and a fun run and you have an event that engages people all weekend. Because we are an island we create an event that you can linger longer than at other festivals, make a weekend of it and stay on Vashon.
