Mark your calendar for Friday July 1st for the Annual Strawberry Festival in East Burke Village from 4 – 7 pm! This sweet, family friendly tradition happens every year in the village when the berries are ripe and ready for picking. There will be live music and kids games on the green. Market Café will be there to serve up burgers and more with, as always, lots of locally produced items included on the menu. And, of course, there will be lots of strawberry shortcake! The 2016 Strawberry Festival is sponsored and hosted by the Burke Mountain Club and the Burke Area Chamber of Commerce.
