Illinois Amish Strawberry Festival
Visit the Illinois Amish Heritage Center. Visit an early IL Amish home. Enjoy sheep shearing, spinning, wool dyeing, caneing, quilting, and other exhibits. Head out to the countryside. Watch for buggies on the roads, clothes on the line, home gardens, and Amish farmers in the fields. Stop and shop at Beachy's Amish grocery store for noodles, cheeses, jams and much, much more. Bring a hearty appetite, as we'll enjoy an Amish home meal served family-style, in an Amish home. Visit the Strawberry Fest activities and market at the Otto Community Center. Observe more crafting, and shop for unique items. Conclude our Amish Day with a visit to Arthur to do some last-minute Strawberry Fest shopping. Stitch and Sew is a wonderful shopping stop for quilters, but there are also furniture and quilt shops, a bakery and fudge shop, and more. This trip is Activity Level 2 (see Acitivity Levels below).
