The Strawberry Festival in Ovid started as an Ice Cream Social in the park, in 1985. It took place during the strawberry season, as this was the first harvest of the year by the Native Americans who lived on the shores of the Finger Lakes, before us. Through the 33 years, it has evolved into a huge community event. Many community groups work together to have this day be the biggest event of the year. The school, churches, youth groups, Historical society, Friends of the Three Bears, Firemen, Ambulance Corps, Library, village businesses, 4-Town Youth Center, community theater group, Lion’s Club, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, the Ladies Aux. of the Sons of Union Veterans, and many more, come together to make this a big family day in Ovid! The event is FREE! Come, bring your lawn chairs, and spend the day!
