May 28: Sweet Party in Guerneville

Taking place once again under the shade of the majestic redwoods, the 11th annual Strawberry Festival returns to raise funds for community radio station the Bridge, KGGV 95.1-FM. Aside from an assortment of sweet strawberry desserts, refreshing strawberry mimosas and premium strawberry beer paired with succulent barbecue, there’s a full afternoon of live music on deck, featuring tunes from the Detroit Disciples, the Pat Wilder Band, Rukus and others. The locally-sourced and family-friendly fest also boasts a silent, strawberry-focused auction, raffle and more, all going toward keeping the volunteer-run radio station serving west Sonoma County on the air. KGGV busts out the berries on Saturday, May 28, at 14520 Armstrong Woods Road, Guerneville. Noon to 5pm. Free.
