Strawberry festival canceled

    The last Saturday in June has for the last 67 years been the traditional day in Wiscasset for huge and delicious strawberry shortcakes, dipped berries, strawberry ice cream, and fresh-picked berries to buy. It has been a cheery, family-friendly event that has long signaled the start of the summer season in Midcoast Maine.

    Unfortunately, given the need to adapt to pandemic avoidance behaviors, St. Philip’s Church in Wiscasset will be suspending its tradition for now. Looking forward to a joyous Festival 68 in 2021.
