Strawberry Festival, a Kokomo summer tradition

Nothing says summer like homemade shortcake, ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream piled high in a bowl! And enjoying that strawberry shortcake out in the sun while listening to live music is even better, and that’s what you’ll find at Kokomo’s annual Strawberry Festival. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the Courthouse Square on Friday, June 2, 2023 in downtown Kokomo.

(Not sure where to park downtown? Our Downtown District maps helps guide you to public parking lots. Check it out here.)

Tickets for strawberry shortcakes are $6. Tickets are available at the event or sold in advance at Kokomo-Howard County Public Library Main Branch in downtown, Greater Kokomo Economic Development Alliance office (inside Inventrek) and all First Farmers Bank & Trust Kokomo locations. Shortcakes will be served until 7:00 p.m. or while supplies last.

But don’t fill up on just strawberry dessert! You’ll want to leave some room for the many food trucks and downtown eateries.

The festival’s free activities will fill the Courthouse Square. Farmers market vendors will sell local produce and homemade items. And enjoy live music throughout the day on the Rhum Academy of Music Stage and the Artsapalooza Art Market, including an array of art from local and regional creators.

Usher in the start of summer with the Kokomo Strawberry Festival!
