VIP Hospitality

We cordially invite you to join us for the NW Hosting Hospitality Weekend, June 19th, 20th and 21st. We look forward to you joining us and enjoying the 89th Marysville Strawberry Festival.


It is my privilege to be the 89th President for the Strawberry Festival. I along with my husband Arvin, the Festival Board of Directors and volunteers invite you to join us for our Hospitality Weekend, June 19, 20 & 21.

Being President this year is exciting for me as Arvin was Festival President in 2013-2014. We have been involved with Marysville Strawberry Festival since 2007. We have raised three sons, Scott, Aaron and Matthew and with their wives we have been blessed with five granddaughters, Taylor, Lily, Addisyn, Emma and Annie which I am sure you will meet sometime during the weekend.

We will be having our regular line up of events such as the Strawberry Eating Contest, Rose Planting, Market, Car show and something that has been brought back by popular demand is our Trike Races including with that will be a new event Pie Jostling on a trike. And of course the main event our Evening Grand Parade. We hope you will find something that you will enjoy doing

You don’t have to worry about getting to the events or businesses as we have VIP Transportation. They are there to pick you up and drop you off where ever you want to go. VIP Transportation is available for all our guest including Royalty and their Chaperones .

We look forward to you joining us and enjoying the 89th Marysville Strawberry Festival.
