This Orange Congregational Church will host its 10th Annual Strawberry Festival at the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road, on Saturday, June 9 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. You can share in a day of food, fun, and family.
YES, this is the same festival that used to take place on the town green in front of the church, but because of its popularity, it was moved to this larger venue a few years ago.
If you get there early you can look forward to pancakes with homemade strawberry compote and whipped cream or just with strawberries! If you are not an early riser, that is okay, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, cheese dogs, chili dog, sausage and peppers, french fries, pulled pork, grilled cheese, veggie burgers and more will be available for sale.
For dessert, you can decide between strawberry shortcake, a slice of strawberry pie or strawberry rhubarb pie, and chocolate covered strawberries! Ask for “to-go” containers!
NOTE: Our suggestion, bring a bit of extra money and bring home a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie to share with everyone you know. They’re amazing!
There will be live music, kids games, rides, face painting, a hayride, pie eating contest, Red Car show, and more than 60 different vendors selling all types of goodies.
Admission and parking for this event are FREE.

The Orange Congregational Church hosted its annual Strawberry Festival on the Orange Fairgrounds Saturday, June 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The lines for the Strawberry Shortcake and such were long and steady all day long. The fresh baked Strawberry Rhubarb pies (still warm) were flying off the table, and vendors sold their wares in under tents on the field.
Shamrock Farm brought truckloads of potted and hanging plants for sale which made for a colorful backdrop at the event.
Here are some photos from the Festival:
