Strawberry festival in Switzerland – strawberry with cream, big strawberry cake, small strawberry cakes, strawberry cocktails and just tons of fresh strawberry during half a day will occupy a huge square right in the center of Swiss touristic town of Locarno.
Apart fresh strawberry the festival will present to the numerous visitors a rich program of musical and costumed performances.
For the note of the most interested fans of strawberry and unusual excursions – in summer many Swiss farms invite guests to arrive to farm, to pick up strawberry and then just to pay fresh-picked strawberries at the exit. If you wish, you can even eat strawberries right during picking and absolutely for free. The garden beds of strawberries are arranged very accurately, berries lay on the plastic and not on the ground, and even the spaces between the beds are filled with straw for maximum purity. As a result, the Swiss strawberries are safe for eating right from the garden.
In the same way as strawberry in June, Swiss farms allow guests to pick up cherries in July and plums in August. At the farm you can taste fresh berries right from the garden, visit the excursion in the Swiss farm and finally see how they grow – fruits and vegetables that we are used to find only on the shops’ shelves :)
