Join us for the 2024 Strawberry Street Festival at Clark Springs Elementary School (1101 Dance St.) on Saturday, May 11th from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.!

Tickets to participate in activities will be sold on-site at the event (details below).

FOOD: We’ll have lots of options for purchase to keep tummies of all ages happy! The lunch menu includes hot dogs, veggie dogs, pizza, BBQ sandwiches, chips and drinks. There will also be strawberry shortcake, sweet treats of all kinds at the Bake Sale – made or donated by you! – and the King of Pops popsicle cart.

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT: Get ready for a DJ spinning groovy tunes, Jonathan Austin, juggler and magician extraordinaire, the cheer team from Lois Harrison-Jones Elementary, a performance by our own Fox Theatrix and Choir, and more.

NEW FAMILIES: Calling all incoming Kindergarten students and families! Let’s meet on the dance floor at 12:45pm. We’ll put faces to names and foster connections before enrolling in the fall.

ACTIVITIES:

Kids will go bananas (strawberries!?) for the Climbing Wall, carnival games, and bounce houses – including the Super Slide and a dedicated space for kids aged 7 and under! Most activities require 1-2 tickets each turn. The Climbing Wall and Cake Walk are 4 tickets each.

What’s the Cake Walk? It’s a delicious spin on musical chairs where participants walk along the numbered path until the music stops; if your number is called, you win an impressive confection from homemade bakers or local shops like Pearl’s. (Donate a cake HERE.)

TICKETS & WRISTBANDS: Individual tickets are $1/each and Wristbands are $45, which includes lunch (choice of entrée, bag of chips, drink), games, crafts, bouncing and more. (The Cake Walk is separate.) We’re able to accept cash, credit cards, CashApp, Apple Pay and Venmo.

MERCH: The one-of-a-kind Festival t-shirt designed by a Fox Student will be available for sale before and during the event. See all Fox merchandise in our Store.
