Stilwell Kiwanis Club has sponsored the annual Stilwell Strawberry Festival since its first debut in 1948. The festival has continued throughout the years to be a highly anticipated event for the Stilwell community and visitors come to take part in the contests, 5K run, parade, berry auction, free strawberries and ice-cream servings, rodeos, carnival, arts and crafts and other events that make the festival a success each year.
Members of the Kiwanis continue to strive to hold the festival as a cornerstone event of the community and offer the community and its visitors hometown events that create fond memories that so many have shared for over 65 years.
