The 70th annual Strawberry Festival in Adairville, Kentucky began Saturday, and continues through next Saturday (March 21st 2016).  Rides, crafts, and performances by local talent begin today, with live music, crafts, vendors, rides, and the opening of the Strawberry Shoppe (homemade strawberry ice cream, strawberry shortcake!) to follow tomorrow.

Saturday’s the big day, with a reenactment of the duel in which Andrew Jackson killed Charles Dickinson, which takes place at 1 p.m. This year they’re promising an especially bloody performance. There’ll be an art walk, a Native American Exhibit, a baby contest, dignitaries, and a parade at 2 p.m. The festival will be capped by an auction and live music on the square. For further information, see the festival brochure.
