A mere weekend isn’t enough to celebrate Florida’s annual strawberry crops. Established in 1930, the Florida Strawberry Festival is a region-wide celebration of everything strawberry. Festival guests can enjoy live concerts by popular artists, a massive assortment of strawberry-based treats, carnival rides and livestock competitions – including a lamb jumping contest. Other highlights include arts and crafts, a Kiddie Korral and several strawberry-themed eating contests.

Visitors to the Florida Strawberry Festival are often tempted by bring home a “flat” (that’s usually 12 small baskets of berries bundled together) from one of the many farmers’ kiosks inside and around the festival grounds. Unless you’ve already devised an elaborate plan to clean and freeze the berries, 12 baskets is usually too much for one family to consume before they begin to spoil. Instead, plan your car ride home for detours to friends and relatives you can gift them each their own small baskets of berries.
