Don't miss the popular Strawberry Festival Parade featuring floats, marching bands, horses and more. The parade will be immediately followed by the crowning of this year's Strawberry Queen. Stick around for a strawberry auction, midway games, arts and crafts, vendor booths and a wide variety of fair food. Recognized as a nationally-celebrated event, Stilwell's Strawberry Festival prides itself on family-friendly entertainment for all ages. Celebrate the annual strawberry harvest and small-town pride with live gospel and country music on the main entertainment stage, a strawberry recipe and baked goods contest and plenty of fresh, ripe strawberries. 

Make time during the festivities for the Strawberry Festival Car Show on Saturday as well.  From 9am to 2pm, the street will be full of classic cars and trucks.  For a small entry fee, you can participate in the contest, or, of course, you can just sit back and enjoy the show.  There will be prizes for top car, top truck, top 50 vehicles, best pedal vehicle and an overall best in show.
