What is the Strawberry Festival?

Since 1962, the Strawberry Festival has raised thousands of dollars to pay for extra programs and equipment for our children at Poplar Road Junior Public School. In 2019 the Strawberry Festival raised $20,000.

It’s a great community event attended by over 1,500 people from the Guildwood area.  It’s lots of fun for kids, parents and extended families.  A BBQ, Silent Auction, Basket Raffle, Grand Raffle, games, food and fun is what the Festival is all about.

What the Strawberry Festival Funds Cover?

Past funds were used to cover the cost of  Smartboards and accessories, Scientist in the School, Bus trips, math workbooks, sports equipment and jerseys and many other items.

At Poplar Road, it was decided years ago that rather than many small fundraising campaigns we would host one large event each year. The result is the Strawberry Festival, held each year in June.

How Can You Be Part of the Strawberry Festival?

The Strawberry Festival is organized by a group of about 10 parent volunteers. On the night of the festival, it takes about 100 volunteers to run all of the events.

Think about volunteering!

It’s a great way to get involved in the school community! Opportunities to volunteer for the date of the festival will be posted at a later date.
