Everyone loves strawberries, right? Well, the community of Shandon sure does. They celebrate everything strawberry the second Saturday in June every year during the Old Fashioned Strawberry Festival in Ohio. This summer celebration is one of the most popular summer festivals in Butler County.
The Strawberry Festival features local vendors and artists, an antique tractor show, fresh refreshments and produce, traditional live Welsh harp music and live organ music.
Explore Shandon's diverse antique heritage by visiting the local shops in the historic houses that will feature antiques, country crafts, original art, pottery and furniture.
The Community House, the site of the 1825 Welsh Church, houses a picnic style supper with a menu full of fresh strawberries, homemade shortcakes and delicious ice cream. Other culinary tastings typically include Shandon's traditional hot pressed chicken and savory pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw, homemade pies and more.
To top off the strawberry celebration, the beautiful and historic Old Welsh Cemetery next to the Community House is open for viewing and exploration.
Best of all, the entire annual Old Fashioned Strawberry Festival is free and open to the public!
