Lebanon Strawberry Festival 114th Festival - Peace, Love & Strawberries May 30 - June 2, 2024
The Lebanon Strawberry Festival is a community wide celebration held each year during the first full weekend in June. The festival started in 1909 as a celebration of the bountiful berry harvests; the strawberry festival continues today as a chance to bring our community together, and to celebrate with pride all of Lebanon's beauty and friendliness.
The Strawberry Festival is a deeply rooted tradition for so many Lebanon families--dating back for generations; and it has become equally special to see new residents and visitors alike be welcomed to our small community during festival time. As the second longest running annual festival in the state of Oregon (second only to the Rose Festival in Portland), the Lebanon Strawberry Festival is proudly organized each year by a board of directors comprised entirely of volunteers. Each has his or her own reasons for being passionate about the festival, and each is dedicated to continuing the tradition of bringing this event to our community for many generations to come.
Whether it is watching our Saturday night fireworks display, enjoying a complimentary piece of our World's Largest Strawberry Shortcake, taking in one of our parades, or just sitting back and relaxing on the lawn to watch some entertainment on our main stage, the Strawberry Festival offers something for everyone, and for every budget. So be sure and mark your calendars each year for the first full weekend in June, and plan on coming out to Cheadle Lake Park and celebrating the Strawberry Festival with us.
