Mattituck Lions Club 65th Annual Strawberry Festival

June 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - June 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The Mattituck Lions Club's 64th Annual Strawberry Festival opened last night and continues through Sunday.

The Mattituck Lions Club, part of Lions International, is proud to announce their 65th Annual Strawberry Festival, presented by the Peconic Bay Medical Center – Northwell Health. The event will take place over the Father’s Day weekend, June 13-16, 2019 in Mattituck, New York. This is a charitable event and all proceeds will be donated to charitable and community causes.

The festival opens Thursday with Hulling Night, where thousands of volunteers from the community come to help hull the approximately 100,000 berries that will be used to make shortcake and alcohol- free daquiris for the festival. The carnival and food court will be open on Thursday night with special Preview Pricing. A “Lite” fireworks show will take place at 9:15 pm, weather permitting.

The full festival opens Friday night. In addition to the carnival, the event will feature craft and business vendors, live entertainment and sales of strawberry shortcake, chocolate covered strawberries, alcohol- free daiquiris, strawberry pies and pints of fresh, local berries. A “Great” fireworks show will take place at 10:00 pm, weather permitting.

Saturday’s program features the crowning of the 2019-2020 Strawberry Queen at 3 pm, and the return of the Shortcake Eating Contest, sanctioned by Major League eating, at 5 pm. A “Grand Finale” fireworks show will take place at 10:15 pm, weather permitting.

The festival concludes on Sunday with Father’s Day specials. Dads get free admission and ride free with a paid child. The winner of the Big Bucks Raffle will be announced at 4 pm.

“Attendees come back year after year to enjoy strawberries grown right here on Long Island, and have fun that the whole family can enjoy,” said Steve Ammirati, Festival Chairman and 1st Vice President of Mattituck Lions Club. “We’re very proud that this has become a signature event for our local community, and a family weekend that attracts our neighbors from all across Long Island.”
