Strawberry Festival & 5K

Save May 6 for SF 2017!

Our 2017 Strawberry Festival will be the first Saturday in May at Old North Durham Park! The park is behind our elementary school building at 724 Foster Street in downtown Durham.

About the Festival

The Strawberry Festival is a community event in Durham, NC, that supports Central Park School for Children. For more than a decade, we've been chopping berries, painting signs, spearing juicy lemons with spicy peppermint sticks, enjoying fantastic local artists, and creating a day each year where everyone can be a kid again.

5K and Fun Run

The festival also includes our Strawberry Festival 5K and Fun Run, a family-friendly fitness event that welcomes runners (and walkers) of all ages and levels.

Proceeds from the Strawberry Festival support project-based learning and integrated arts at CPSC.

Thanks to our Sponsors!
