Strawberry Music Festival is a five-day, family-friendly campout with live music featuring nationally recognized touring acts and local up-and-coming performing artists. This year we celebrate Strawberry’s 40th anniversary and are looking forward to an epic reunion of family and friends!

Programming includes a wide variety of activities and entertainment for all ages and abilities, making Strawberry the perfect holiday weekend getaway.
