Afton, Minnesota (map)
Afton's Strawberry Fest
The annual Afton Strawberry Fest arrives at the peak of Minnesota's berry season. Our mellow small town vibe comes alive as thousands of residents and tourists flock to the St. Croix River town of Afton's popular Strawberry Celebration.
The festival activities are centered in the heart of the town's park, but the festival atmosphere prevails over much of the town and Afton's Old School Art Studio is no exception.
As you enter the school grounds, located just North of the park, you will be treated with the delicious aroma of smoked ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. This seriously was the hit of the event last year. So you must arrive early before they sell out.
As you meander through the school's courtyard you will be able to spend time with some of River Valley's most well-known authors. This is your opportunity to have your book signed and pick the author's brain as to what is in store in their next novel...anywhere from historical information to romance, mystery and self help, we host up to a dozen different authors throughout the 2 day event.
In the back of the courtyard, you will experience many of our creative members' personal booth spaces where you can shop and discover their talents. Many demonstrations and activities are scheduled.
Our large courtyard also houses a stage that will have a variety of artisits showcasing thier musical talents. Enjoy a beverage from the Art Bar while discovering all the festivies.
More than anything, the festival is a chance to celebrate our community - and of course- to consume a basket full of delicous, succulent, juicy red strawberries!
