Strawberries…get your strawberries at this annual June festival. Strawberry pies, strawberry shortcake and fresh strawberries are the real draw to downtown Coldwater, but the wonderful crafter’s have handmade candles, jewelry, yard ornaments, furniture and more.
This 3-day event kicks off annually with fireworks and an opening ceremony, complete with door prizes and crowning of Polish Royalty. Polish food and music, a parade, a Polish wedding reception, crafts, talent show, car show, pancake breakfast, fishing tournament, truck pulls, Bingo and sports tournaments fill this weekend with events for the whole family.
If you like apples…or even if you don’t you’ll love the AppleFest. In addition to baked goods, apples, cider and crafts, you’re bound to enjoy the people watching and the fabulous historic downtown shops and restaurants.
