Like teenagers, strawberries often demand that a festival be thrown in their honor when they hit a certain age. Join the harvesters in a summer jubilee with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get 25 activity tickets to spend at the Strawberry Festival, running Friday–Sunday, June 17–19 at Lee Farms in Tualatin (a $20 value).
Lee Farms, owned and operated by the Lee family in Tualatin since 1869, kicks off summer with the annual, free-admission Strawberry Festival. Attendees can use their tickets to participate in an assortment of lively activities, including roaming through hay mazes (1–3 tickets), going on hayrides (3 tickets), and engaging in boxing bouts with hay people. Swiftly glide toward the ground on the giant slide (2 tickets), or get bounced up into the sky on the giant jumping pillow (3 tickets). The farm’s affable animals make friends in the free petting zoo, and, although they’re not included in today’s Groupon, pony rides (5 tickets) are available for children and down-on-their-luck knights. A delectable array of baked goods, foods, and beverages can be purchased to assuage hungry bellies, and the sounds of live music will fill the strawberry-scented air on June 19, starting at noon.
It was 1869 when the Lee family planted its first seed in the soil of Tualatin, Oregon. Today, three generations of the family still keep Lee Farms' lights on and its scarecrows vaccinated. They stock the country store with local produce, 18 flavors of honey sticks, and 17 varieties of jam. In the bakery, the staff hand makes pies each day, baking perennial favorites such as apple and seasonal flavors such as pumpkin.
To keep things fresh, Lee Farms rotates the selection of food and activities each season. In May a greenhouse surrounds visitors in flowers, and in October the farm transforms into a celebration of the harvest season, when guests can pick from 12 varieties of pumpkins. Lee's staff cuts down stalks to make a corn maze and drives visitors on scenic hayrides across the farm while they sample kettle corn and homemade cider.
