About The Strawberry Festival
Troy celebrates its place as the center of Ohio’s strawberry production by hosting the Annual Troy Strawberry Festival the first weekend of June. Come join us in our 37th year!
Although there are pre-festival events which take place in May, the Strawberry Festival officially begins on Friday night with food and entertainment for the whole family in our historic Downtown of Troy! Two full days of events follow beginning with a Parade on Saturday morning. From there the main action continues on the Great Miami River Levee! Browse over 200 high quality art and craft booths. If you can make it with strawberries, you will find it at the Troy Strawberry Festival, more than 70 food booths offer everything from strawberry salsa, chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry bbq sauce, and of course the strawberry donuts! Great family entertainment, three stages of free entertainment, free shuttle service and free admissions.
The Festival is more than just a weekend of fun. It serves as a major fund-raising event for many of the area’s civic and charitable groups. Committees work year-round to prepare for the weekend when as many as 100, 000 people come to Troy to take part in our world class festival.

Yeah, but I did a couple of nice rides
Up and down the back side of the ridge that runs along the Tuolumne river to the Hetch Hetchy entrance last year. There was no traffic at all.
But, I don't know about getting to the Valley floor from there. At least you could avoid 120 for a while. And, you could always cut back over to 120 at Camp Mather. And, if the timing was right you could catch a band or two at the Strawberry Music Festival (that's why I was there).
I hate the town we live in :-(
When we moved here 9 years ago the downtown area was being restored and all the buildings had businesses in them. There were art shows and car shows and music festivals on the first fridays of every month.
then slowly things started going downhill. the downtown area businesses started closing, the art festival stopped because there became a lack of interest, the car shows stopped.
the only festival is now the strawberry festival and it is downtown and they bring in the carnies with the thrown up rickety rides and NO strawberries ANYWHERE.. seriously... just a festival full of vendors seeing what kind of crap can they fry and get out of town before the food poisoning sets in and the vendors that sell all the counterfit crap

Hola BikeFo! I just had an amazing couple of weeks.
First, a trip to the Strawberry Music Festival for four days of camping and music. And, everyone is riding bikes! I took my mountain bike. I rode the trails around the camp, some fire roads and also a couple of rides on the road. One ride to Hetch Hetchy Resevoir in Yosemite (see pics below) and one the other way to the Cherry Lake power station.
