Strawberry Festivals

Introduction to the Strawberry Festivals Page

strawberry festivalsStrawberry festivals have been a part of spring and summer celebrations marking the transition from the cold and dreary wintertime to a time of renewal, life, and color.  Strawberries are the first crop ready for harvest in most temperate regions.  When they are ready to be picked, it is a signal that scarcity is about to give way to abundance.  And, that is cause to celebrate!  There are scores of strawberry festivals, and most have long, storied histories of community involvement, integration of all people into the enjoyment, and fun activities for all ages.

Most strawberry festivals center around, of course, the magnificent strawberry and are held in either the month of May or June (although some are held both earlier and later).  A typical strawberry festival will include a pageant for children or teenagers (or both), lots of music, events and activities centered around eating strawberry dishes (including strawberry shortcake!), and a host of other family fun.  Depending on the size of the strawberry festival, carnival rides and other games and activities are available.

Most strawberry festivals are free to attend.  However, none are free to put on.  The typical small-town strawberry festival is usually hosted as a fund-raiser for various community groups, often a church or a chamber of commerce, and are funded by vendors and artisans who rent space at the festival in order to offer their crafts and wares to the festival goers.  There are also several festivals who charge an admission to cover the cost of administrating the festival and to profit.  Each festival is different and offers unique traditions and character.  Some are associated with Pick-Your-Own Strawberry Farms, and most can provide a day or a weekend full of excitement!

How the Strawberry Festivals Page Works

This main Strawberry Festivals page is intended to serve as a directory for every strawberry festival in the U.S.A.  The goal is to be as comprehensive and all-inclusive as possible.  So, if you are aware of a strawberry festival or other unique strawberry-related event that is not already included in the directory, please let us know about it by using our Submit To Us page.

The strawberry festivals are listed below in alphabetical order by state. Under each state’s heading is a list in table form with information about the strawberry festivals.  You can sort each table by clicking on the column heading at the top of each column.  This should facilitate finding the specific information you need.   For example, to find a strawberry festival in a particular county within a particular state, simply click the top of the county column and then scroll down to the county or counties near you.   You can quickly find out about how long it will take you to drive to any of the farms by clicking the link in the Map/Directions column.
