Lincolnville’s 26th annual Strawberry Festival will be held Saturday, July 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lincolnville Community Building and United Christian Church (UCC), 18 Searsmont Road, Route 173, in Lincolnville Center. A parade will begin at 10:00 at Drakes Corner featuring the Lincolnville Band, vintage cars and Strawberry Queen Adele Padden. Youngsters on decorated bicycles will join the entourage at the library and all will arrive at the Community Building at 10:30.

There will be musical entertainment throughout the day including the Lincolnville Band and Rosey and Friends.

Children’s activities will include face painting; a puppet show, “The Tale of the Mouse”; flag making; and outdoor games led by new minister Pastor Elizabeth Barnum. Miniature horse Annie Sue from Moose Ridge Farm will be there, too. 

The main attraction is homemade strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. There will also be grilled hot dogs, sausage rolls and popcorn. Jams and other strawberry goodies will be for sale as well as this year’s festival T-shirt, gifts, vintage items and a book of Lincolnville’s favorite strawberry recipes.

The church, which was built as the town meetinghouse in 1821, will be open. It has the original boxed pews, upper pulpit, balcony and rippled glass windows and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
