The Seventh Annual Cornish Strawberry Festival

The Cornish Association of Businesses (CAB) sponsors this all ages event on June 30, 2018 in Historic Cornish Village located in the scenic Western mountains and lakes region of Maine on Route 25 — 30 miles West of Portland and 9 miles East of the New Hampshire border. (See a map here)

Each year, this FREE festival continues to grow with visitors and vendors. This year it is held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the center of Cornish village in historic Thompson Park and features more than this season’s strawberry’s, fresh strawberry shortcake and other strawberry products offered by vendors.

Each year this event features:

  • Over 40 vendors offering art, photography, jewelry, crafts, and farm produce
  • Strawberry Shortcake & Fresh Strawberries by the pint
  • Local live music performances
  • Local food vendors
  • Shopping at many local shops
  • and a few surprises!

This year we are donating 50% of profits to the Sacopee Rescue!
