Cutting Bee to kick off Strawberry Fest
- Published: June 4, 2018
The annual Strawberry Cutting Bee, in which community members help prepare for the annual Strawberry Festival, will be held Friday, June 8, beginning at 9 a.m. Those who would like to volunteer are asked to meet at First Presbyterian Church to help cut strawberries; a simple lunch will follow when work is complete.
The community Strawberry Festival will follow that evening, 6–9 p.m., at First Presbyterian. Strawberries from Tom’s and ice cream from Young’s, served with homemade cake, will be sold, and the YS Community Band, under the direction of James Johnston, will perform at 7 p.m.
The festival will continue on Saturday, June 9, during Street Fair, beginning at 11 a.m. and continuing until the strawberries are gone. All are welcome to attend; all proceeds will go to the ongoing maintenance of First Presbyterian Church.
Street Fair will be held in downtown Yellow Springs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, with the Music and Beer Fest from noon to 7 p.m. at the Bryan Center. Acoustic music and performances from local belly dancing troupe, Egyptian Breeze, will be held at the Soin Stage on the lawn of Jackson-Lytle-Lewis Life Celebration Center, opening at 9 a.m. with free yoga on the lawn, taught by Monica Hasek from the Wellness Center. Local favorites Gin-Soaked Angels will celebrate the release of their first album at the Music and Beer Fest. A full schedule of performances at both the Soin Stage and the Music and Beer Fest, as well as more information about Street Fair, is available at http://www.yellowspringsohio.org/street-fair.
