Moulton’s Sweet Event Set for May 3-4

Decatur, Ala. (February 27, 2024) – Moulton’s berry delicious event returns the first weekend in May for two days of family fun, fresh strawberries, and live music. Now in its ninth year, the 2024 Strawberry Festival is set for May 3-4 with activities taking place at the Lions Club Fairgrounds.  

As the month of May approaches and warm weather fills the air with the arrival of springtime, parents in search of family-friendly activities will want to put the Strawberry Festival on their schedule of things to do. Entertainment geared to children includes free inflatables, a bungie jump, petting zoo, horse and buggy rides ($2/person) and the Strawberry Princess Walk (Saturday). There will be a classic car/truck/motorcycle show, tractor show, arts and crafts vendors, cornhole tournament (Saturday) and a celebration for veterans (Saturday) and Lawrence County’s Got Talent will take to the stage at 12 p.m. Saturday.

Mouthwatering strawberries, the highlight of the two-day event, will be available to purchase and organizers suggest arriving early to purchase the berries before supplies run out. Farmers will be on hand to offer tips and suggestions for storing and preparing. 

The festival also showcases gospel groups, oldies and folk performers, dance teams, bands and choral groups from local high schools and rising stars from across the region. Festival goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs as ongoing live music fills the air both days. Remnants, Red Hill Band and One Accord are just a few of the bands slated to perform.

Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. All activities take place at the Lions Club Fairgrounds located at 455 School Street in Moulton unless otherwise noted. Admission is $1 both days. Proceeds benefit the Jesse Owens Runners’ Club and local schools.
