This weekend kicks off the popular Strawberry Festival in Troy. Crowds of over 100,000 are expected at the event which will feature over 70 food vendors. Sort through the choices with our Food Adventure’s MUST EAT items.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— The 39th Annual, Troy Strawberry Festival kicks off Saturday, June 6 from 10am-8pm and closes out Sunday, June 7 from 10am-6pm
— Most booths are fund raisers for local charitable groups, so buy often and support local causes !
— Lots of walking as the Festival stretches from Downtown Troy, across the levee to the Troy High School Football Stadium
— Other fun attractions include a Strawberry eating contest, Live bands, A Big Wheel Race, and a Sunday morning 10k run.
Sorting through the food items, Food Adventures came up with our 3 favorite MUST EATS of the festival
— STRAWBERRY SALSA: Deliciously hot and sumptuously sweet. This stuff is great with tortilla chips. Want a Food Adventure? Try it over vanilla ice cream ! Hungry Jax says this is the best food item at the festival. Even better it is a charitable product, which promotes college scholarships for Troy Students. Buy the salsa year round HERE!
— FULTON FARM’S FRESH STRAWBERRIES: Is there anything as good as freshly picked strawberries from a local farm? Good munching just plain while on the go. Grab a bunch and bring them home for a rendezvous with whipped cream, chocolate or make some killer smoothie shakes.
— STRAWBERRY DONUTS: Fluffy, flaky and slightly crispy, these are the iconic donuts that built a tradition. We know, you have to wait in the line. So, buy a bunch, as they support the Troy Band Boosters. Take a lot home. Why? Because these go great with a glass of milk and you can bribe your friends with them.
Join the crowd this weekend in Troy, and see why thousands flock to be a part of this festival. It promises to be a berry good time for all!
