Please join us for the 16th Annual Strawberry Festival at Kule Loklo: A Coast Miwok Cultural Exhibit at Point Reyes National Seashore, Saturday, April 26, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Kule Loklo is a replica of a typical Coast Miwok village prior to European contact for the land now known as Point Reyes National Seashore.
The festival is free and is a great event for the entire family. Bring a picnic lunch, a blanket to sit on, and strawberries. Park at the Bear Valley Visitor Center and walk the ½ mile trail up to the village. No dogs, bicycles, or alcoholic beverages are allowed.
For more information, please call the Bear Valley Visitor Center at (415) 663-1092.
