The grounds of the beautiful and historic Warrior Run Church become a hive of activity for the annual Strawberry Festival. Grills are started, tables covered and all the details finalized. Customers arrive with their families and set up lawn chairs, intending to spend the day under the ancient trees. The freshly washed and waxed antique cars start to arrive and line up at the end of the lot.

A Little History In 1980, local residents started the Strawberry Festival event to support historical research and preservation of this area’s Revolutionary War Era culture. The event was a success from the start, because of their dedication to quality food and entertainment. The money raised became the foundation for the restoration of the Hower-Slote House and the award winning Heritage Days Festival, held each year in October.

Some folks travel great distances for the Strawberry Festival. Some are descendants of the early settlers who carved out homesteads in this valley in the late 1700’s, and this is a homecoming for them. Others have lived in this area for only a few generations, but feel the tug of nostalgia for this quiet place where people have gathered for nearly 200 years.
