Tiskilwa Strawberry Festival to expand events on June 14

TISKILWA — It's time to mark your calendars for a host of springtime events at year’s Tiskilwa Strawberry Festival on June 14.

Several local organizations and businesses have teamed up this year for a day of fun for the whole community. The new venue, the west lawn of Tiskilwa’s Museum on Main, will offer shady comfort for enjoying traditional strawberry short cake hosted by Plow Creek Fellowship as well as the brand-new Artists and Artisans Festival hosted by TIskilwa Historical Society, children’s games and musical entertainment hosted by Tiskilwa Community Association, and a few more delightful surprises.

The festivities begin bright and early with townwide garage sales at 8 a.m.
