The Strawberry Festival has traditionally kicked off the start of summer for the Williamsville and Amherst community since 2000. This annual fundraising event for area initiatives has historically averaged about 750 attendees, but in 2019 attendees were estimated at 1,000 with about one- third being children.

The volunteer Rotary Club thanks all those who have attended this event in prior years. Their support has helped raise over $60,000 during the past 19 years through this event. The Rotary Club of Williamsville provides similar sponsorship funds to area recipients. Past recipients have included the Amherst Youth Foundation, Amherst Meals on Wheels, Gateway-Longview, senior class scholarships for Williamsville South High School, scholarship partnership with the Amherst Symphony Orchestra, the Amherst Senior Center, the Williamsville Library, and others. Internationally, the Club also supports the world-eradication of polio through Rotary International’s successful PolioPlus program. Hands-on maintenance of Rotary Park in Williamsville’s Glen Park is also an annual undertaking.

Past local business sponsor participants in the annual event have included Tops Friendly Markets, Wardynski Meats, Sweet Jenny’s, The Amherst Bee, and Real Estate Signs.
