The festival started out very small in 1977 and has grown every year. The family-oriented affair has been self-supporting from the start with the help of many Troy area businesses sponsoring specific events. Today, the event is a community wide effort involving thousands of volunteers organized by a committee of over 40 men and women. It generates enough income each year to finances a host of community service projects.
The above information is the key to the Troy Strawberry Festival’s success – just everyday folk turning their time, talents, and energy into a fun, family community event that attracts over 200,000 visitors each year to the Troy area.
