2022 Strawberry Festival Sponsors
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, grown ups, families and friends. A BBQ, Silent Auction, Basket Raffle, Grand Raffle, games, food and fun is what the Festival is all about.
After missing the past two years, we are ready to bring back this Guildwood tradition! As gathering restrictions are easing every month, Poplar Road Junior Public School is starting to enthusiastically plan for the revival of the Annual Strawberry Festival.
What do 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 parent volunteers. On the night of the festival, it takes about 100 volunteers to run all of the events. If you would like to be a sponsor, donor, committee member or volunteer, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call For Donations
The Festival Committe is accepting donations from the community of new, unused items for raffle baskets and silent auction items.
