St. George Strawberry Festival

June is the perfect month to celebrate one of the state’s favorite fruit: strawberries! The fest is on June 3 from 9 am to 3 pm and will be held rain or shine. Pick up a basket or two of locally grown strawberries or enjoy one of the strawberry-themed dishes such as shortcakes, smoothies, and chocolate-dipped strawberries. Face painting and a bounce house will be available to entertain the little ones.

East Brunswick Spring Fest

East Brunswick’s annual festival combines the best of the area’s food, music, and artistry. On June 3 from 10 am to 6 pm, come by the East Brunswick Community Arts Center to view and buy original work from local artists.
