A day of activities, competitions and photo opportunities based on the theme of strawberries! Hedgerows Hydroponic and Hunters Wine, Blenheim, are celebrating the arrival of the first Marlborough strawberries, and the festival is suitable for everyone.

Hedgerows will showcase their magnificent spray-free fresh strawberries and Hunters Winery will present the full range of their famous Marlborough wines to visitors. Food using strawberries will be featured in the Hunters Garden cafe. Join in or watch funny games and competitions including whipped cream in your face, who can eat the most strawberries with your hands tied behind your back.

Can you draw or paint the best strawberry on site? Enter your own or bid for the best decorated strawberry cake in a silent auction. Miss Strawberry Festival 2011 will be crowned during the afternoon, and strawberry morning and afternoon teas will be served in the cafe throughout the day. Taste the best of the Hunters cafe food at a special theme lunch.

The best dressed little strawberry kids will get prizes, decorated babies in prams will be admired and the retirement home folk can enter their very best decorated strawberry hats in the competition on the day! Entertainment and an art exhibition for young and old. Families are welcome. Drop in on your way around the wineries.

Strawberry plants, fresh strawberries, novelties, native plants and local product will be on display and for sale in the garden stalls. The beautiful grounds at Hunters Winery offer art in the garden, a native plant walk, outdoor sculptures and an art gallery for your pleasure. Of course, the Hunters famous wines will be there for the tasting and purchase too. Try bubbly with a strawberry splash! Plenty of parking. Come one, come all and have a wonderful time at the 2011 Strawberry Festival!
