1. Peddler’s Village Strawberry Festival

Saturday & Sunday, May 2 & 3, 10 am – 6 pm

Peddler’s Village, Routes 202 & 263, Lahaska, PA

Strawberries take center stage at Peddler’s Village’s annual Strawberry Festival. Try the berry dipped in chocolate, in assorted pastries and shortcake, jams, fritters, or just in all of their natural glory. If you’re looking for more to eat than strawberries (though strawberries alone are quite alright), they’ve got food vendors lined up, too, plus artisans peddling their wares, fun for the kids, and live entertainment.

Food Vendors at the Strawberry Festival this year:

Taste Old York Cellars’ wines, tour the vineyard and winery, browse local art and craft vendors (picking something up for mom for Mother’s day along the way, perhaps), and chow down on food from Oink & Moo BBQ, The Outslider, and Waffle de Lys, all while enjoying live music. There are plenty of activities for the kids, too. (Okay, so it’s not in Bucks, but it’s fun and nearby!)
