CEDARBRUG, Wis. -- One of Ozaukee County's largest summer events is going virtual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cedarburg's Strawberry Festival, originally a two-day event, will now take place virtually from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, June 27.

“We are so excited about offering a virtual Strawberry Festival,” said BJ Homayouni, Festival Executive Director. “Strawberry Festival has been a popular event in Cedarburg for the last 35 years, we couldn’t just sit by and do nothing. Aside from the festival being an important economic event for Cedarburg, it has become a tradition for many of our attendees. We wanted to honor that tradition by offering a virtual festival given live events are not possible.

Plans are already underway to develop an "engaging virtual marketplace" that will include Cedarburg merchants, as well as other traditional participants.

Organizers say if you have any immediate questions to please email cedarburgfestivals@yahoo.com.
