Our annual Strawberry Festival (June 29 - 30, 2019) was a very successful and celebratory event. Niawen'kó:wa to all who volunteered and participated!

The Strawberry Festival is Kanatsiohareke's largest annual fundraiser, and is vital in supporting our many community and cultural programs. Our annual gathering was attended by hundreds of friends from near and far and we handily met our revenue goal.


Strawberry Festival 2019 took a group of dedicated, tireless volunteers many months to organize and pull off. Many, many people made this year's festival possible. We whole heartedly thank them all.


We also give special thanks to a few folks who led some of the major efforts:

  • Bonnie Jane Maracle, our overall event and volunteer organizer;

  • Bear Fox, for lining up the many performers who entertained and educated our visitors;

  • Kay Olin for organizing the silent auction, and for her traditional storytelling;

  • Kevin Deer who delivered traditional opening and closing messages each day;

  • Tony Moonhawk Langhorn who organized the vendors;

  • Ed Maracle who led the fry shack cooking crew;

  • Tom Porter for everything, from haying the parking fields to the beef from his herd, and for running the craft store both days; 

  • the Kanatsiohareke Board of Directors who made the site ready for everyone;

  • and for anyone we may have forgotten, please accept our apologies and fill their name in here...


We'd like to invite you all to please consider joining us as we plan for next year, to make the 2020 Strawberry Festival even bigger and even better!

Here are a few photos of the festival, showing some of our volunteers, attendees, and performers who so generously donated their efforts on our behalf.

Niawen'kó:wa for a successful 2019 Strawberry Festival!
