Welcome to Buchanan Lioness Club
Mercersburg Community Since 1990!!
STRAWBERRY FEST AND "FUN" DOG SHOW
The Buchanan Lioness Club invites crafters, artisans and businesses to participate in the annual Buchanan Lioness Club Strawberry Festival and Fun Dog Show event held at the Mercersburg Lions Club Park on the first Saturday in June. This year it will be June 3, 2017. The Mercersburg Lions Club Park is located at 405 South Park Street in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania.
This is a great community event with delicious food, a "Just for Fun" Dog Show and a sales/vendor area.
The food concession will offer Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberry Sundays and Lions Club Famous BBQ chicken as well as other sandwiches and beverages.
The Fun Dog Show brings out canine contestants who vie for titles such as best trick, best groomed, fastest hot dog eater and more.... all just for the fun of it!
The vendor area is a mix of crafters, artisans, small businesses and sometimes a few "yard salers" who set up for this easygoing one day event. All food concessions are reserved for the Lion/Lioness Club but non-ready to eat food vendors may be considered.
The Buchanan Lioness Club promotes the event by advertising it in local newspapers, on roadside signs, on our website and through social media.
This event draws a family oriented crowd who come out to see or participate in the dog show, enjoy the food, and to browse the vendor offerings. This event is held to raise money to support several community projects with a focus on eyesight conservation. Specifically, money raised by the dog show entries is directly donated to the Leader Dog Program which trains seeing eye dogs for the blind.
Buchanan Lioness received the James Buchanan Award on April, 21st from the Mercersburg Borough at The Mercersburg Hictorical Society Dinner. Award was presented to President Lioness Loni Bard by Mayor Lion James Zeger.
