The 6th Annual Strawberry Shake 5K walk/run has a mostly flat route that takes the runners through the quaint downtown area of the Historic Owego Marketplace on the opening night of the Owego Strawberry Festival. There is also a 1 mile Strawberry Shortcake race for children 3-10 years old that takes place at 5:30 pm. After the race, participants are encouraged to head downtown to the festival and stay for the awesome fireworks display that takes place over the Susquehanna River. Since the debut of the Owego Strawberry Festival 37 years ago, hundreds of thousands of people have been drawn to downtown Owego to experience the charm of this annual festival. An estimated 20,000 visitors come back each year to enjoy live entertainment, great food, hundreds of vendors, spectacular fireworks, a 90-minute parade, and- of course- delicious strawberry shortcake! The 2017 Strawberry Festival will be held on June 16 & 17.
