Berry Dairy Days has been a consistent part of the Skagit County community for the past
83 years. The festival continues to celebrate Burlington’s history, agriculture, farming, traditions
and community. In 1937, the first annual “Berry Dairy Days” was launched and featured a giant
Strawberry Shortcake that was pulled down Fairhaven Avenue in red wagons. In 1965 the event
was handed over to the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, who to continue the tradition today.

Berry Dairy Days is one of the oldest festivals in Skagit County. It still represents
Burlington’s impressive agriculture and farming community. The Burlington Chamber has added
many activities to this fun-filled weekend but the essence remains all these decades later with a
Grand Parade, Festival in the Park and endless amounts of strawberry shortcake all weekend
