Strawberry Festival

Messiah's 32nd Annual Strawberry Festival will be held on June 8th, 2024 from 9am to 4pm 

LOCATION: Gamber Volunteer Fire Department Carnival Grounds (3838 Niner Road, Finksburg MD 21048)


We are running a pilot program with credit cards this year. We have a retail credit card reader that we will be using at the strawberry shortcake booth. This is the only booth that will accept credit cards. Other booths will accept cash or tickets as they did last year. There will be two ATM machines dispensing cash at the festival this year.

The Gamber Fire Department is located on Route 32, five miles north of Eldersburg. Our festival will have crafts, vendors, pony rides, hay wagon rides, delicious strawberry shortcake, fresh strawberries, entertainment, and more! We are accepting vendor applications, please click on the link below to download vendor information and application forms.
