Almost time for the annual Strawberry Festival

January 30, 2014 by  

It’s that time of year again: the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City is shortly to take place. The event will be held for 11 days, from the end of February until early March.

The festival presents many world-known musical artists in concert each year. This year’s lineup includes Styx, Ronnie Milsap, Rascall Flatts, Charlie Pride and Brenda Lee. Ticket prices rage in price from $10 to $55. However, there are also a lot of free concerts taking place on the festival grounds throughout the event. In addition to music, people of all ages will be able to enjoy the Belle City Midway, the kids can have fun in the Kiddie Korral and several special guests from the reality show “Swamp People” will be making appearances.

The Neighborhood Village will feature vendors selling handcrafted and home made merchandise. There are also set to be a number of contests in topics such as cake decorating, food preservation, needlepoint and quilting. Several other contests are also planned such as strawberry shortcake and corn dog eating contests.

The festival attracts thousands of visitors to Plant City. It’s likely that local brochure printers have been asked to provide services to help get the word out.

The Florida Strawberry Festival will take place from February 27 to March 9. 2013. Admission prices in 2013 were $10 for adults and $5 for children. To find out this year’s prices or to get more information about festival activities, call 813-752-9194.
