INDIANAPOLIS — A sweet tradition is back on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis after a one year hiatus due to the pandemic.

The annual Christ Church Cathedral Strawberry Festival runs until 4 p.m., or until supplies run out.

Organizers postponed the festival from June due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the primary fundraiser for charities supported by the church was canceled in 2020 for the same reason.

The month may be different, but the homemade shortcakes, strawberries, ice cream and whipped topping are the same. It will cost you $7.00 for "The Works", or you can buy the individual parts of the dessert for $2.00 each.

The Christ Church Cathedral Women donate the proceeds from the festival to a number of Central Indiana groups each year. This year that includes the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention, the Indiana Youth Group, Exodus Refugee Immigration and the School on Wheels.
