The Strawberry Social Returns on July 1!

Saturday July 1st 2:00 – 4:00 PM

🍓 Join Us for a Revival of Tradition at Elmhirst’s Resort Strawberry Social! 🌸

Transport yourself back to a bygone era as we recreate an event that is inspired by a cherished community event of Ontario’s strawberry-growing regions from the 1800s. We proudly present the Elmhirst’s Resort Strawberry Social—a delightful revival of a timeless tradition that will captivate your senses and create memories to cherish for years to come. 🍓✨

History, Tradition and Connection:

Traditionally, these events were semi-formal with an elegant ambiance, where tables were adorned with fine china and proper linens to set the stage for an extraordinary experience. Gentlemen would wear their best attire, while the ladies would flaunt large, ostentatious, and colourful hats or scarves to add a touch of whimsical charm to the festivities. 💃🎩

This event also held an additional purpose: teaching younger children the art of proper table manners. As youngsters enjoyed this experience, they were able to learn valuable etiquette while also enjoying the sweet rewards of strawberries and ice cream. It was an experience that bridged the generations. 🍴🍓

At the heart of this event was the celebration of strawberry season. We are reviving the event in order to indulge in delectable strawberry treats and a scrumptious selection of desserts that will tantalize your taste buds. But the Strawberry Social is more than just a feast for the palate—it’s an opportunity for the community to come together, share stories, and savour the joyous spirit of togetherness. 🌸🍨

Our vision for Elmhirst’s Resort Strawberry Social is to breathe new life into this tradition, update it with some modern twists, and ensure its legacy thrives for generations. We invite you to join us and become a part of this community fixture, allowing us to create cherished memories and forge connections that transcend time. 🌟

Mark your calendars and save the date for the Strawberry Social, a delicious indulgence! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be a part of the revival of a treasured tradition at Elmhirst’s Resort. 🍓🌸
