On Saturday, May 18, 2019, the Somerset County recreational complex at 30290 Sam Barnes Road in Westover will be transformed into a fun filled free community event celebrating wellness and strawberries. Two annual events, Healthy Somerset’s Community Field Day and Somerset County Arts Council’s Strawberry Festival, are partnering to host one large event featuring food, games, vendors, music and of course strawberries. The event is from 10 am to 2 pm. Shore Transit will be offering free transportation to and from the event from 9 am to 1 pm from their Princess Anne and Crisfield locations.
Visit a variety of health and wellness vendors. Learn about healthy eating at a number of cooking demonstrations featuring strawberries. Hear live music from local school bands and local deejays. Have fun at the interactive Early Childhood Section. Dance to ‘On the Edge’ band with a concert on the lawn from 12 pm – 2 pm. Participate in fitness and food demos, play old-fashioned field day games, and watch local fire/EMT and police heroes participate in friendly competition.
“We are very excited to be joined this year by the Somerset Arts Council’s Strawberry Festival. This event will be our biggest yet and we encourage everyone to come join us, learn new ways to be healthy and active and celebrate the strawberry”, says Clint Sterling, Recreation and Parks Director. Somerset Community Field Day is organized by Somerset County Recreation and Parks, the Somerset County Health Department and the Somerset County Judy Center.
