With apologies to The Beatles, strawberry fields are not forever so you need to make sure you don’t miss Cabot’s 10th Annual Strawberry Festival, April 27 and 28. Strawberries, especially Arkansas-grown, are my all-time favorite fruit. They are a pure taste delight. Here’s your chance to stock up your freezer so you can have them year-round.
The Cabot Community Center is where local strawberry growers show off the best of their crop for all to taste and purchase. A carnival is open Thursday and Friday, 6 pm.-9 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Vendor booths are open 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The festival pageant is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
There will be games and entertainment for the whole family. The center is located at 508 North Lincoln in Cabot. Admission is free. Festival proceeds benefit children in the community. Visit juniorauxiliaryofcabot.com/strawberryfest.html or call 501-628-4044 for more information.
