Today, Strawberry Days is Colorado’s oldest continuously held civic festival and attracts thousands of locals and visitors alike the third weekend in June.
From a colorful parade to an Artisan’s Fair, to free strawberries and ice cream, Strawberry Days sums up the friendly character of Glenwood Springs.
The Artisan’s Fair features more than 150 crafts from myriad artists throughout the country.
FamilyFest entertainment will take place on the main stage to accommodate bigger and better acts. As always, families also will enjoy a petting zoo, face-painting, juggling and magic acts, pony rides, strolling clowns, troubadors and more.
