Linvilla Orchards Strawberry Festival





June 2nd


Get the family ready for one of Linvilla Orchards biggest events of the year. On Saturday, June 2nd, Linvilla  will be celebrating their annual Strawberry Festival. You and your family won't want to miss out on this action packed day! Take a hayride to the fields and start picking! With acres of strawberries, you can pick your own delicious, fresh strawberries right off the plant.

Picking starts at 8 a.m., so make sure you get there early for the crème of the crop. And make your way to the Farm Market at 11 a.m. for the presentation of the Delaware Valley's largest Strawberry Shortcake.

If you're looking to get a few tips and pointers from the experts to spruce up your garden this season, then don't skip the classes at Linvilla's Garden Center.
  • Planting Strawberries will take place at 9 a.m. with Shirley Kline.
  • Gardening Q & A will be at 11:30 a.m. when Theresa Rowan will solve all your gardening problems.
  • Certify your garden as a natural habitat at 4 p.m. with a class on Attracting Wildlife to your Garden.
Kids will also enjoy a busy day at Linvilla while meeting costumed characters that will be making appearances throughout the day. There will be two chances to catch Raptors on Tour, at 10 a.m. or 11:15 a.m., where Birds of Prey can be seen up close and personal while also learning about their behaviors. Makin' Music will get the kids on their feet singing and dancing when they perform from 12 to 4 p.m. There will be games, contests, and fun for the whole family. And that's not all; kids can enjoy pony rides, face painting and Linvilla's famous playground.
