The celebration of one of the sweetest summer treats is back in Saanich this Sunday!

The 53rd annual Saanich Strawberry Festival is a FREE family event that highlights strawberries in all their delicious glory.

What started as a celebration of the municipality’s agricultural roots has now grown into a vastly popular yearly festival.

Why, you ask?

Throughout the duration of the festival, you can get strawberries and strawberry ice cream for just 50 cents!

Between 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., members of Saanich Council and staff will be on hand to serve up traditional sweet treats.

The event will also feature a range of family-friendly activities including face painting, arts and crafts stations, bouncy castles, live entertainment, and more.

Don’t miss it!
