Roll out the strawberry red carpet in the Arthur area as it is the start of festival and fair season in the Heart of Illinois Amish Country on Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4.
What better way to celebrate late spring and early summer than with America’s favorite fruit, the strawberry, a multitude of vendors and some great food all mixed together to create Arthur Amish Country’s Strawberry Jam.
With all the unique stores in downtown Arthur you won’t want to miss their special sales and sidewalk sales. Craft and food vendors will fill Vine Street selling a variety of goods and a wide array of food choices to whet any appetite. Fresh strawberries will be on hand for sale by the quart too. You won’t go away empty handed or hungry!
What about strawberry pies? Oh, they’ll have those too – hundreds will be made for this year’s Strawberry Social.
There will be an all-day bake sale Saturday with freshly made Amish baked goods such as bread, cinnamon rolls, and Angel food cake (yes, they will have strawberry flavored!).
While there is something to do in Arthur almost every day and certainly most every weekend, Strawberry Jam will have lots of opportunities for everyone to get out and have a great time. Enjoy the day…eat, shop, and relax!
