The Strawberry and Dessert Festival
Celebrate everyone's favourite fruit — and get stuck into a heap of sweet treats.
UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 14, 2020: The Strawberry and Dessert Festival has postponed its 2020 festival until 2021. It'll now take place on Saturday, September 18, 2021 — keep an eye on the event's Facebook page for further details.
They're red, sweet and juicy — and they're everyone's favourite fruit. They're also grown in abundance around Queensland. Did you know that 40 percent of the state's strawberries come from the Moreton Bay region?
Well, you do now, and you might just want to celebrate that fact. All you need to do is head on over to Bribie Island on Saturday, September 18, 2021 for Sandstone Point Hotel's annual Strawberry and Dessert Festival, and you can do just that.
Because you can never have too much of a good thing, the event will paint the pub pink with farm-fresh strawberries — and strawberry milkshakes, strawberry ice cream, scones with strawberry jam and chocolate-coated strawberries are all usually on the menu. So is a strawberry-eating competition, plus a bar serving strawberry-flavoured beverages.
As you might've noticed, this year's fest has made an addition to its moniker. This isn't just a strawberry festival, as it has been in previous years, but a showcase of many a sweet treat as well. Basically, arrive hungry — and wear something stretchy — as you prepare to devour desserts aplenty.
Tickets aren't on sale yet — keep an eye on the event Facebook page for further details.
The Strawberry and Dessert Festival was originally due to take place on Saturday, September 19, 2020, but will now be held on Saturday, September 18, 2021 at Sandstone Point Hotel — and you can keep an eye on the event Facebook page for further details.
