The 22nd Annual Raspberry Festival at the Monastery of St. Gertrude in Cottonwood, Idaho will take place Aug. 3 and will include numerous events, including an arts and crafts fair, live music, a kids’ carnival, quilt show, Fun Run & Walk and chapel tours.

The 5K/10K Fun Run & Walk  will kick off the festival at 8 a.m. The course begins at the monastery museum and follows a scenic, out-and-back paved road with stunning views of the Seven Devils Mountains, Camas Prairie, the Gospel Hump and Buffalo Hump Wilderness areas. All participants will receive a Raspberry Festival t-shirt, according to an announcement.

Register online or the day of the Festival starting at 7 a.m.
The Quilt Show and Arts and Crafts Fair will feature local artisans and the entire festival will, of course, have lots of food including a pancake breakfast, grilled hamburgers, raspberry shortcake, jam and products.
Annually the Raspberry Festival draws approximately 3,000 visitors. The event is a fundraiser for the Historical Museum at St. Gertrude, which works to preserve the monastery’s rich history.
