The Florida Strawberry Festival Turns 85

Roll out the red carpet because the Florida Strawberry Festival celebrates 85 years of berry bliss this year.

From February 27 - March 8, 2020, Plant City will be brimming with guests from all over the state of Florida and beyond to enjoy award-winning music artists, riveting agriculture and livestock demonstrations, thrilling fair rides, craft fair shopping and, of course, juicy red strawberries.

Live Entertainment

Entertainment at the Wish Farms Soundstage

Each year, the popularity of the Florida Strawberry Festival attracts headline performances by America's favorite music artists to the Wish Farms Soundstage.

And while country music will have your boots stomping most evenings, there is always something for everyone's musical taste in the lineup. This year, lucky attendees will get to enjoy greats like Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Livestock Shows

Agriculture & Livestock

The Florida Strawberry Festival was created in 1930 by a local group of volunteers to celebrate the strawberry harvest. They also wanted to educate the community on the process of bringing these luscious berries to market.

The presentation of livestock, industry demonstrations, and farm animal exhibits keep the spirit of education and celebration alive each year. Make sure to check out the Robinsons Racing Pigs while you sip on some Netterfield's lemonade and cheer on your favorite piggy!

Strawberry Treats

Strawberry Everything

You can't visit the Florida Strawberry Festival without trying the famous strawberry shortcake. This classic dessert starts with a biscuits or pound cake and served with a mound of fresh-cut strawberries and a colossal spoonful of whipped cream underneath biscuits or pound cake. You can also sprinkle a little bit of granulated sugar on top for an extra sweet touch.

If shortcake isn't your dessert of choice, there are plenty of other strawberry-themed treats to tantalize your taste buds. Try some strawberry funnel cake cookies, strawberry milkshakes, chocolate dipped strawberries, and even a  stick of deep-fried strawberry butter.

Looking for something savory? Take a taste of a strawberry hamburger. We take a fried hamburger patty, add strawberry cookie crumbles, sandwich it between French toast, and top it with strawberries.
