The festival features fresh strawberry shortcake made with freshly picked Maine strawberries and topped with freshly whipped cream. The strawberry shortcake recipe has been handed down through the years. A limited amount of strawberries will be available by the quart.

This year, the 43rd Annual Strawberry Festival will be co-hosted by the Seal Cove Auto Museum and the Mount Desert Island Historical Society.  Proceeds will help support the missions of these two organizations.
