Burien’s annual Wild Strawberry Festival – a family-friendly event, filled with musical performances, games and activities for youth, vendor booths, and food trucks – will be held the weekend of June 17-18! The two-day festival will be packed with entertainment options fit for the entire family. Booths will line the streets around Town Square Park where vendors sell specialty goods and hold information sessions for visitors as they stroll by. Bring the kids along for fun games and activities, Touch-a -Truck, bouncy houses and much more! Also, on Sunday, June 18, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., now in its 13th year will be the Father’s Day Car Show. This annual event features lean mean cruzin’ machines and has become a perfect date with Dad. Beautifully restored classic cars and their present-day cousins line SW 152nd Street in downtown Burien from 4th Ave SW to Ambaum Blvd. Also on tap are raffles, tunes from the 50’s & 60’s, local restaurants and shops opening their doors for food and drink and in store specials, a Chili Cook-Off, and great cars! This will surely be a fun filled day! New for this year is a motorcycle show too!!
