The Florida Strawberry Festival

Family-friendly fun & the very best Florida strawberries

The Florida Strawberry Festival only comes once per year, join us for 11 days of endless entertainment and don’t forget to pick-up your Wish Farms strawberries.

Festival History

Since the first Florida Strawberry festival in 1930, the festival has brought the community of Plant City together to showcase agriculture and the area’s infamous crop – The Florida strawberry. The festival began as a way to celebrate the community’s harvest, and while the festival has preserved its agricultural focus, it has grown to include rides, concerts and entertainment, youth livestock competitions, and of course LOTS of strawberry treats.

We  the florida strawberry festival

A long standing celebration of our city, our history, our community, and of course… our delicious strawberries. Visitors come from all over the state and beyond to experience what Plant City has to offer. From agriculture and crafts to contests and concerts, The Strawberry Festival has always been a family-friendly showcase built on tradition and community – We are so honored to be a part of it!
