Another successful Strawberry Festival is in the books, and boy, was it ever fun!!
More bands than ever, big crowds, and of course, strawberries! Didn’t make it this year? Mark your calendar for 2018!
Here are just a few highlights from the 2-day festival
First the block party, then the Strawberry Festival, and now Emporium Sunday!
Bring dad out to the Owego Elks Emporium Sunday, June 18th from 8-3. Lots of guy stuff, along with good food!
Early Owego Antique Center is open from 10-6; stop by after visiting the Emporium.
The winery season is in full force, and while the Finger Lakes area has some of the most outstanding wineries, did you know there are a few local wineries in and around Owego?
Glen Park Vineyards is located on Allen Glen Rd. in Owego and is known for their dry artisanal wines and hard cider. In 2016, they were also permitted to start serving local craft beer by the glass! Make sure to check out their events section for special tastings, etc.
While Black Bear Winery isn’t located in Owego, it’s only a short drive to Chenango Forks, NY. They too are available for tours and tastings year round and offer beautiful facilities for special events! They also use local farmers and their produce for all their needs.
And if you want to venture from Owego to Ithaca NY, make sure you hit the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail for a full day of wineries, attractions, and food; not to mention the gorgeous scenery!
The 37th annual Owego Strawberry Festival will be held on Friday, June 16th and Saturday, June 17th.
This is Owego’s premier summer event, with visitors from all over, both near and far!
Click HERE on information for both days…don’t miss out!
Can it be June already?? It is, and that means First Friday Art Walk from 5-8 pm!
A list of participating businesses and their events can be found HERE, including a demonstration at Early Owego by Jim Mead of his Spanish Barrel Piano and Ithaca Gem Roller Organ; these are truly spectacular pieces!
First Friday Art Walk is always a good indication that summer is on it’s way; make this fun, family event a part of your summer plans!
The Owego Elks Emporium will be held on Sunday, June 4th from 8 am-3 pm.
Early Owego is open every Sunday from 10-6, so stop on over after visiting the Emporium!
We will be open regular hours on Monday, 5/29 from 10-6.
Thanks to our veterans, past and present, for their service!
This past weekend at Early Owego, we had the first Hang Out on Lake Street, where our dealers displayed and sold their wares from the fences bordering the Lake St. construction.
We will continue doing this every weekend (weather permitting) as long as the fences are up, as it adds a sense of community participation and whimsy!
This coming weekend (weather permitting), we will be holding a free chalk art event along the sidewalk in front of our store. Participants of all ages and artistic abilities are encouraged to transform the concrete into works of art!
Join us all day Saturday, 5/27 and Sunday, 5/28 for this fun event!
Chalk will be provided; the only thing you need to bring is your imagination and creativity!
The construction has begun on Lake St. to replace the century old pipes and water lines.
And while the village has several other parking options, there is also a fun campaign going on called Walk Owego.
Walk Owego is a campaign to encourage both healthy living and to let patrons know just how close it is to walk to each business in and around the village; even though Lake St. is closed, the businesses and sidewalks are not!
Walk around the village to see all it has to offer, such as the River Walk; a beautifully landscaped view of the Susquehanna river, located between two small parks and free to the public.
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”…..Dale Carnegie
We’re open regular hours today, 10-6
