BELOIT - After 11 years, the Sun Valley Strawberry Festival is still going strong.

The festival looks to raise money for nonprofit groups around Beloit.

From 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 22 at Sun Valley Presbyterian Church, 1650 Sun Valley Drive, small business craft vendors and live entertainment is sure to offer something for all.

The Beloit Memorial High School jazz band will serenade guests during the free event.

Over two dozen vendors will offer various crafts, with 30 expected to sign up, according to organizer Caryn Mellom.

Favorites of the small festival include the kid's play area and face painting station, and the large raffle for adults. Organizer Caryn Mellom said the festival is a great way to support Beloit's growth.

"It's just a fun day and it's away to get the kids out and a way to support small businesses," she said.

But not everything can be reveled, with the popular raffle back once again by popular demand. All profits go to Beloit Hospice, The Dutter House, Family Services, Caritas and the Beloit Domestic Violence Survivor Center.
