May 5 - 6, 2017 Strawberry (and good time) lovers flock to Vanceboro to make spring taste wonderful. Locally grown fruit and all possible varieties of goodies made with the pretty berries are for sale along with other festival fare. Rides, music and game booths of every description appeal to families, strawberry lovers, and anyone feeling festive. Car shows, beauty pageants and knowing proceeds go to the Rescue Squad, Fire Departments, Christian Help Center and the Town of Vanceboro enrich the day. The festival is sponsored by the Vanceboro Rescue Squad and is easy to find 20 miles north of New Bern. From U.S. Highway 17 north to N.C. turn on Highway 43 and follow the signs.
