Strawberry Festival

Saturday, May 5, 2018

The Strawberry Festival is a family-fun community event in Durham, NC. It's held the first Saturday in May (May 5, 2018), 11am to 3pm, at Old North Durham Park! The park is behind our elementary school building at 724 Foster Street in downtown Durham. ADMISSION IS FREE, so come enjoy the entertainment and a variety of activities.

Since 2005, we've been chopping berries, painting signs, spearing juicy lemons with spicy peppermint sticks, enjoying fantastic local artists, and creating a strawberry-filled day each year where everyone can be a kid again.

The Strawberry Festival supports Central Park School for Children's Monarch Fund, which cultivates paths of opportunity for all students at our school. It supports access to transportation, nutrition, after-school care, club/camp/field trip scholarships, and technology equipment.
