Celebrate the Strawberry
The Yarra Valley Strawberry Festival is an annual event to mark the beginning of the strawberry picking season. This FREE event will be held on Sunday 8th November, from 10am-4pm, in Lilydale, just 40 minutes drive from Melbourne's CBD.
The family-friendly event is organised by the Victorian Strawberry Development Committee, and is hosted by St Patrick's Primary School, Lilydale.
There will also be plenty of delicious foods to tempt you, including: strawberry meringues, scones with Yarra Valley Strawberry Jam, jelly strawberry cups, chocolate-dipped strawberries, strawberry muffins, strawberry smoothies and much more.
Aside from the scrumptious strawberries, there are plenty of other entertaining activities for all ages. There will be jumping castles, animal petting zoo, face-painting and a market with lots of local stallholders. For dare-devils, there will also be workshops from RUCCIS Circus School.
