CSF news

about the festival

In 2011, the Town of Wallace, lead by a core group of leaders, brought the "Strawberry Festival" back to Wallace after 50 years.  Each year, the Carolina Strawberry Festival has grown bigger and better.  The Festival has a broad selection of  Music & Events in Wallace that will entertain the entire family!

We will kick-off the 2019 Carolina Strawberry Festival in Wallace with the Strawberry Jam on Friday, May 3rd from 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM with TrainWreck, The Band of Oz, Dinosaurs, One Price Midway Rides and Food Vendors.  Our Main Festival will be held on Saturday, May 4th from 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM.  The day will be filled with performances by local talent, craft vendors, food vendors, Dinosaurs and the Midway. The evening brings Chocolate Chip & Company and The Catalinas to the stage!   Thank you for your help in supporting the Carolina Strawberry Festival in Historic Downtown Wallace.

Thanks to Thurman Parker Photography for the festival photos. 

The Carolina Strawberry Festival is made possible because of the hard work, time and talents of our volunteer coordinators and our volunteers on festival day. 
Some of these volunteers are town employees who volunteer their time to the event. We are grateful to each and every one of these people for their involvement year after year! 
If you are interested in being a part of this year's event, please fill out form in the Volunteer tab above! 
Volunteers who give 3 hours to the event will receive a Volunteer Festival Tee Shirt in appreciation!
