This year marks the 81st annual Strawberry Festival at the South Bay Grange in Olympia. Historically strawberry fields surrounded the South Bay Grange. "The fields are gone, but the community continues." Join us as we start the celebration with our Strawberry ShortK 5k Run/Walk. Our route begins at the South Bay Grange and continues in a flat loop that returns by way of the beautiful Chehalis Western Trail.
Our first place finishers in each category will receive a complimentary Strawberry Shortcake with all our runners enjoying fresh berries at the finish. Additional prizes will be awarded, in a drawing, provided by our fabulous sponsors.
Spend the afternoon with us at the Strawberry Festival with food, vendors, activities, and performance presentations starting at noon. End the evening with a contra dance at 7pm. Entry into the festival is free!
In partnership with NTHS Boosters, the proceeds from the race wil benefit the North Thurston High School Cross Country and Swim Teams. Fundraising from the Strawberry Festival supports children's theater during the summer through www.bkmusicalproductions.com.
Sign up today and we'll see you at the Festival!
