The 2023 Strawberry Festival has been scheduled for June 3rd! We are thrilled to welcome back our friends from Philadelphia Orchard Project, Philly Goat Project, and Philadelphia Beekeepers’ Guild to put on another great free event for our community.
The goats will be presenting one of their beloved-by-all-ages story walks and hanging out for pets. Volunteers from the Orchard Project will be sharing some horticultural education to help everyone get to know the trees in the Mansion’s community orchard a little better. A beekeeping demonstration will give a chance to observe how the bees in the mansion hives make honey from Fairmount Park’s flowers. And, of course: the June bounty of strawberries will be free for everyone to pick their own basket.
The festival will be outdoors at the mansion from 1 to 3 PM. We have free onsite parking for those coming by car, and for those making use of SEPTA the 32 bus stops just a short walk away.
