Dudley Police Press Release
One of the big celebrations of the year in Dudley is the Annual Strawberry Festival. The Dudley Grange, on Center Road, has hosted this event for over 55 years. It is an old fashion “lawn party” and it is a great way to officially welcome the arrival of summer as a community. This festival is scheduled for Thursday, June 21st from 4 pm until 8 pm. It is well attended by several hundred people from the region.
In the past, many of the roads leading to and from the area had vehicles parking on both sides. This creates a traffic hazard for everyone traveling in this area and can hinder the response of emergency vehicles.
The public is being advised of the presence of detours and parking restrictions in this area. Parking on both sides of Center Road will be allowed in most places. The street will be closed between Dudley Oxford Road and Tanyard Road starting at approximately 3 pm. Traffic will be detoured around this location. Parking restrictions will be in place on several roads. Dudley Hill, Dudley Southbridge, and Dudley Oxford Roads will be restricted to one side parking. No parking will be allowed on Tanyard Road. Nichols College will allow those who attend this event to use their numerous parking lots. Visitors are encouraged to utilize these locations. Others who plan to travel through this area are asked to seek alternate routes.
Travelers must also be aware of many people waking in the area and crossing roads during this event. Extra precautions must be exercised by all travelers. Please take time to plan ahead and park in safe locations. The Dudley Police Department wishes to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and assistance. Should people require further information, please call the Department at 508-943-4411.
