On Saturday, May 27, from 10-4 there will be strawberry themed food, fun, and
festivities all over Alderson as the Annual Strawberry Festival is in full swing.
Sponsored by Alderson Main Street and the Town of Alderson; coordinated by Sheena

a great time for all.
There will be more than 30 art and food vendors on or near the Alderson Memorial

On the Greenbrier County side of town there will be pony rides and activities for the
whole family. The Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church is having their Annual
Yard Sale and Hot Dog sale from 9am-1pm.
Alderson’s restaurants including Ginny’s Goodbites; the Riverview Café; and Fruits of

and relax for a few minutes while enjoying great food. Alderson shops will also be open.
Just outside of Alderson, on Flat Mountain, Sunset Berry Farm will have endless
activities and fun at the farm all day long as well as the opportunity to “pick your own”
beautiful and tasty strawberries.
