Welcome to Bedford Downtown in Bedford, OH

Bedford Historical Society Strawberry Festival

It isn’t officially summer until the Strawberry Festival! Strawberry Festival marks the beginning of summer in Bedford and that means one thing — strawberry shortcake.  For one weekend on the square, spongecake is doused with strawberries, ice cream and whip cream making the sweet taste of summer.  Music, games and food trucks keep people hanging around long after the dessert is gone.

The Commons

Several events take place on our historical Square or “Commons”  which is located across the street from the historical 1832 Hezekiah Dunham House at 272 Broadway (State Route 14).  Also surrounding the Square are the 1874 Townhall, 1882 Wheeling and Lake Erie Train Depot and the 1892 Old Baptist Church.  Free parking is available and plentiful!

Swing by the Commons for our amazing events.
