Moulton’s Sweet Event Set for May 5-6
Decatur, Ala. – Moulton’s berry delicious event returns the first weekend in May for two days of family fun, fresh strawberries, antiques and live music. Now in its eighth year, the 2023 Strawberry and Antique Festival is set for May 5-6 with activities taking place at the Lions Club Fairgrounds.
Parents in search of family-friendly activities will want to put the Strawberry and Antique Festival on their schedule of things to do. Entertainment includes free inflatables and activities for children, petting zoo, classic car/truck/motorcycle show, tractor show, horse and buggy rides ($2/person), the Miss Strawberry Pageant and arts and crafts vendors. A cornhole tournament, a two-mile trail run and a one-mile kids run are also slated for Saturday, May 6.
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, 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 on two stages. Southern Outline, Hands of Grace, Phillip Ghrigsby, Tremayne and Josie Ray Jones are just a few of the performers slated to perform.
Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and 8:30 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.
