Ohio 2022 Strawberry Festivals - Where, When and More Details!

Ohio

There are two general types of strawberry festivals 1) community festivals, usually organized by a church, school, local Chamber of commerce or a town and 2). Strawberry festival held at and by a farm

They are different in what they offer, so they are grouped separately. (of course not all states and areas have both. And following the festival listings are links to our easy to follow directions about making strawberry jam, freezing strawberries, strawberry pies and much more. 
CHECK before you go.  Texas, Florida, Georgia, etc, are fully re-opened and having no problems, but Ohio is still cancelling outdoor events like strawberry festivals.
