Strawberry Fest has been a popular tradition on the Stony Brook campus for more than 20 years with over 2,000 people in attendance each year. Every spring, the campus community gathers on the Academic Mall to enjoy a mouthwatering menu of strawberry treats and a fun-filled day of live music, dancing, and student performances.
This event is traditionally held on the first Wednesday of May during Campus Lifetime in conjunction with Diversity Day, a celebration of Stony Brook’s different heritages and lifestyles through music and dance performances, creative arts, lectures and cultural offerings. Diversity Day is planned and organized by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, along with student representatives from the campus’ cultural clubs and organizations. This event is one of many that support the Stony Brook University Equity, Inclusion and Diversity initiative.
This year’s Strawberry Fest, hosted by the Faculty Student Association (FSA) and CulinArt features delicious strawberry-inspired treats such as Strawberries with Chocolate, Strawberry Ricotta Stromboli, Strawberry Teriyaki Chicken over Strawberry Asian Slaw, Strawberry Shortcake Cone, Strawberry Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Reduction, Fish Tacos with Strawberry Salsa and Strawberry Lemonade or Strawberry Infused Water.
