I always look forward to this event since I work downtown and have easy access and LOVE strawberries! Yet, for the last two years I almost miss it - not this year!! I am marking my calender!

The Cathedral Women (CW) will host the 43rd Annual Strawberry Festival on Monument Circle Thursday, June 12, 2008. The Strawberry Festival takes place in front of Christ Church Cathedral on Monument Circle in Downtown Indianapolis.

The popular event utilizes more than 300 volunteers and serves an estimated six tons of strawberries and 18,000 homemade shortcakes. All proceeds from this fundraiser go to community outreach programs at the local, state, national and international levels.

CW takes pride in being good stewards of God’s bounty. More than 95 percent of the Strawberry Festival proceeds goes directly to local, national and international not-for-profit groups.

Looove the strawberry festival. I worked right on the circle and we would take an early lunch to get our share!
