Saturday, May 11
If you have a hankering for sweet, ripe, juicy strawberries and cream, head to the Stilwell Strawberry Festival this Saturday, May 11. Located in the heart of Adair County at Oklahoma’s border to Arkansas, Stilwell is the “Strawberry Capital of the World” (proclaimed by the governor in the 1940s). You can’t make that kind of statement without have the goods to back it up, and Stilwell never disappoints. Get in line for the free strawberries and cream at 3 p.m., but don’t forget to enjoy all the activities – a parade, carnival, car and bike show, recipe contest, berry auction, music – leading up to the big finale.
