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!

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 2018 Carolina Strawberry Festival in Wallace with the Strawberry Jam on Friday, May 11th from 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM.  Our Main Festival will be held on Saturday, May 12th from 11:00 AM - 11:00 PM.  Vendors are allowed on Saturday's Event Only. We are currently in the planning stages of this year's festival and we feel confident it will exceed the expectations of our prior festivals.  Thank you for your help in supporting the Carolina Strawberry Festival in Historic Downtown Wallace.
