While enjoying refreshments, discover what the Ambassador Program entails including community volunteering, lasting friendships, becoming a role model, and potentially earning a college scholarship.
The Strawberry Fest Royal Ambassador Program exists to provide opportunities for involvement with the local and surrounding communities to support the growth and development of young ambassadors to gain poise, speaking abilities, and interviewing techniques. The ambassadors will travel throughout the greater Twin Cities and will be a part of many volunteer opportunities here in the Cottage Grove community. The program's intent is to instill skills that will be invaluable throughout life.
The program is open to young women and young men, ages 8–21, from all surrounding communities. Ambassadors are not required to be residents of Cottage Grove. Please send an email to Lori Olsen at to RSVP. This event is free to the public.
This year’s Strawberry Fest will run June 20-23 with the theme “Celebrating 40 years of fun right before your berry eyes!”
The Strawberry Fest is planned by an all-volunteer committee whose mission is "to bring the community together.” At the event, residents, businesses, city government and non-profit organizations all come together to proudly celebrate.
The Cottage Grove Strawberry Fest is a four-day, family-focused event that offers something for everyone. An estimated 20,000 to 25,000 people will enjoy wonderful food, fantastic bands, a carnival, and much, much more. Families and friends come to the event to be part of the community while they relax and enjoy the kickoff to summer. Show your community support by joining others for Strawberry Fest 2024.
