Upcoming Event - Tennessee Strawberry Festival

— 1 minute read

Hey y'all, I wanted to tell you about an upcoming event I'm excited about: the Tennessee Strawberry Festival in Dayton, TN. It starts Monday, May 9th and runs through Saturday, May 14th.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Dayton, it's about an hour north of Chattanooga, in Rhea County. It is most known for being the place of the Scopes Trial in 1925, which was about whether evolution should be taught in public schools.

The Tennessee Strawberry Festival started in 1947, as a one-day festival sponsored by the Dayton City Lion's Club. The events this year include a Strawberry Pageant, a carnival, a fine art show, food and craft vendors, live music, a parade, and much more!

I'm looking forward to attending for the first time, spending the day with friends, and celebrating my birth month. We love visiting friends in Dayton, and I can't wait to experience the festival.

Have you been to the Strawberry Festival before? I'd love to hear any recommendations you have! For more information on the Tennessee Strawberry Festival click here. Hope to see you there!
