A sweet night was had by all who showed up to the Cherry Valley Strawberry Social last evening.  Locals and visitors alike enjoyed fresh local strawberries from Laundry Farms paired with home-baked goodies with dollops of  icecream.  There were even gluten-free and vegan options too!

As they say……. the proof is in the pudding or should we say cake?





Lead Organizers Susan and Glen Wallis

Comedy Troupe Taste That who will open for Success 5000 all the way from Edmonton.


Tickets can be purchased online here for $12 or at the door for $16.


and if that wasn’t enough fun………..join us for a workshop!!!



Success 5000 is an Edmonton-based duo specializing in musical comedy. They have toured the country, performed on CBC’s The Irrelevant Show, and been featured in comedy festivals such as Vancouver Sketchfest, Toronto Sketchfest, Philly Sketchfest, Seattle Sketchfest, Sled Island and Improvaganza. They have released two full-length comedy albums: a studio recording entitled Laughcore, and a live album, We’ll Fix It In Post, recorded at the Sewing Machine Factory in Edmonton. Self-described as “musical comedy that doesn’t suck,” their songs blend absurd humour with biting cynicism. Reviews have praised their show for its “self-depreciating, nihilistic, and sarcastic humour that’s both current and genuinely hilarious.”
