“Spirit of the Faire” Penelope Clementine Rose

The Ashland Strawberry Faire is held on the streets of Randolph-Macon College in historic Ashland, Virginia.

The Faire is a traditional celebration to promote the community and celebrate the strawberry harvest. The Faire is held in early June, on the campus of Randolph-Macon College campus.

The Faire is a free, community and family-oriented event during which non-profit groups and churches raise funds and offer something for everyone. There are vendors selling arts, crafts, plants, and antiques to the thousands who attend. There are local businesses featured from Ashland and Hanover. The proceeds from the Faire provide scholarships and grants to local non-profit groups.

Interested in Sponsorship Opportunities?

Sponsorships range from $150 to $5,000 (for Signature Sponsor – New!).   The sooner you commit, the longer we can promote your business!
