Even before I moved to Tioga County, I traveled down Route 17 to the Village of Owego for the annual Strawberry Festival.

The Owego Strawberry Festival has grown throughout its 35 year history, with arts and crafts, live entertainment, wine and beer tasting, 5K race and kids 1 mile run, the Strawberry Pageant, Rubber Duck Derby, new surprises, and of course strawberries!

I love just taking a walk through the village, talking to some of the over 200 vendors and people attending this great summer event. I also enjoy listening to some really good music from local musicians, and having some strawberry short cake.

Every community has something to be proud of and the annual Owego Strawberry Festival is one of the highlights for thousands in this area.

Come and support the fest this weekend!
