The historic downtown square serves as the perfect backdrop with its charming shops, restaurants, and public spaces coming alive with activity. Whether you’re a longtime resident or a first-time visitor, the Strawberry Festival offers a chance to experience the heart and soul of Fay-Town.

Indulge in Seasonal Delights and Fresh Strawberries

There will be tasty seasonal menu items scattered throughout the festival grounds. Whether you’re craving something sweet like strawberry shortcake or pie, or something savory like strawberry salsa and salads, you’ll find it there!

The Fayetteville Strawberry Festival has also partnered with the Arkansas Brewers Guild to bring you a selection of local craft beers that pair perfectly with the sweet and juicy flavors of the festival. 

But the fun doesn’t stop at the food – there’s a wide array of activities and live entertainment that the entire family can enjoy.
