The Stilwell Kiwanis Club has sponsored the annual Stilwell Strawberry Festival since its first debut in 1948. The festival has continued throughout the years to be a highly anticipated event for the Stilwell community. Visitors come to take part in the many festivities that make the festival such a success each year.
The festivities include these popular events: the 5K run, the parade, the carnival, live entertainment on the bandstand, the midway full of food, arts & crafts, and trinket booths, the classic car show, helicopter rides, the berry auction, the rodeo, and the serving of free strawberries and ice cream.
Members of the Stilwell Kiwanis Club strive to add fun and interesting events, while continuing to offer the community and its visitors hometown events that create fond memories that so many have shared for over 65 years.
