It’s time to enjoy Hinton’s annual Strawberry Festival! As our first festival of the year, the day will be filled with U pick strawberries, our annual pie eating contest (adult and child divisions), Hinton’s famous strawberry ice cream and other strawberry treats, play time in Hinton’s FarmLand, and other special strawberry fun. Our greenhouse will be filled with herbs, flowers, and vegetable plants to get your own spring planting underway.
Due to the early spring weather, Hinton’s Strawberry Festival is being held earlier than usual this year — on Kentucky Derby Day, Saturday, May 5th. To celebrate Kentucky’s big race, in addition to our strawberry fun, we will also have a “Run for the Berries” stick horse race (adult and child divisions) and Hinton’s own “Horse Race Pie” on hand. Bring your own horse for the race or create one after you arrive at the farm.
The Strawberry Pie Eating Contest will begin at 1 p.m. with the Run for the Berries to follow at 1:30.
Market hours are 9 am – 6 pm with festival activities from 11 am – 3 pm. Come party with us before your Derby party. You will be a hit if you bring fresh strawberries!
