67th Annual Strawberry Festival

By the middle of June the North Fork strawberry crop is reaching its peak and bursting with flavor. On Father’s Day weekend, the peak of the strawberry harvest, the Mattituck Lions Club brings the community together for a special weekend of fun and purpose. Whether you’re here year-round, are a seasonal resident or are drawn here by the Festival, you’re in for a wonderful time.

Dig into the strawberry shortcake, sample the strawberries dipped in chocolate, try the strawberries any way you like them. Head over to the rest tent to enjoy live music. Then find out what is available for sale from arts and craft vendors.

Cheer as the new Strawberry Queen is crowned. Experience the midway rides. Taste foods from around the world. The fun keeps going after the sun sets, so bring lawn chairs and enjoy the fireworks on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Much of the Festival fun is free, thanks to the efforts of our many volunteers. When you do spend, you help the Mattituck Lions advance their year-round community service efforts. Learn more about who benefits.

ABOUT GARET’S PROMISE:

In memory of a loving son and brother, Garret’s Promise is an indoor sanctuary of healing committed to helping others move forward as they piece together their lives following a traumatic event. Garret Louis Lederman’s passion for helping others was evident in how he would be the first to help a stranger struggling, or in his career as a football coach and mentor to young players. He found purpose in helping others find the best versions of themselves and this round pen is a promise to ensure Garret’s passion for people lives on, bringing healing to those suffering. Garret’s Promise is a promise to help someone reclaim their authenticity.
