Strawberries rule June 22-23 in Historic Cedarburg CELEBRATE THE luscious fruit of summer – fresh home-grown strawberries – during Historic Cedarburg's 28th Annual Strawberry Festival. Visit 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, June 22, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, June 23. Over 100,000 people visited Strawberry Festival last year for free, familyoriented fun. The signature food item is the Original Strawberry Brat, made just for the fest. Other delicacies include strawberry shortcake, strawberry pie, strawberry crepes, strawberry slush, strawberry Schaum Torte, chocolate-covered strawberries and strawberry cheesecake. Enjoy Cedar Creek Winery's Strawberry Blush Wine or purchase one of their award winning wines by the glass. When you've over-indulged in succulent strawberries, there are lots of savory food courts all over town. Sunday Morning Strawberry Pancake Breakfast is served at the Cedar Creek Settlement, home to a stunning collection of boutiques and galleries as well as the winery. Catch breakfast form from 8-11 a.m., along with live music outdoors along Cedar Creek. Other settlement offerings include live bands, food booths and a Merchants Marketplace as well as Strawberry Contests, including Strawberry Shortcake Eating and Strawberry Bubblegum Blowing. On Washington Avenue, view art at Cedarburg Cultural Center's Fine Art Fair, Cedar Creek Settlement's Arts Fair and the Ozaukee Art Center's Fine Art Fair. A highlight is the 13th Annual Plein Air Painting Competition. Henry's Kids Korner in Cedar Creek Park offers daily pony rides, a petting zoo, bouncers, food vendors, a paintable mural and lots of entertainment. The CedarQuacker 500 launches duck races on the creek, Saturday and Sunday at 1 and 3 p.m. and there is a fun run as well. Tour Historic Cedarburg aboard Country Aire Tractor Hayride Shuttles, including the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts. The beautifully preserved 19th century architecture of Cedarburg makes it a popular destination year-round. Downtown was named to the National Register of Historic Places in the mid-1980s with stone buildings, picturesque churches and Victorian homes that create a delightful spot for strolling, shopping and dining.
