The Florida Florida Strawberry Festival is an annual event that takes place in Plant City, Florida.
The Florida Florida Strawberry Festival was started in 1930 by the local Lions Club, a local philanthropy club dedicated to bettering the community, after several attempts by locals in the previous 20 years to promote the local strawberry crop. Beginning in 1929, the Lions Club worked to plan the festival honoring King Strawberry, the champion of the area’s agricultural products.
The Florida Florida Strawberry Festival lasts 11 days and generates attendance of about half a million visitors from all over Florida and other countries around the world.
The Florida Strawberry Festival is recognized as one of the best festivals in the US and ranks among the Top 40 Fairs in North America. The Festival admission is $10 for adults (aged 13+), $5 for children (aged 6–12), and free for kids under 5.
The Florida Strawberry Festival is a venue for flea market-style craft and item sales, various free entertainment acts/events, a very large midway, plus twice-daily “big name” musical concert performances.
