Florida Strawberry Festival Brings the Yum to Plant City Feb 26 – March 8, 2015

It’s a bit of a drive from Orlando, but berry fans won’t want to miss this year’s Florida Strawberry Festival down in Plant City. Florida Strawberry FestivalThis year’s event runs February 26 through March 8.

As the name implies, the strawberry is the main attraction at this fair. There are so many ways to enjoy this sweet treat at the fest, but diehards say you must do at least one shortcake version. Also, buy your flat of strawberries to take home from the vendors set up outside the fest. You’ll pay less.

The second reason to attend the Florida Strawberry Festival is the nightly headliner concerts. Admission is free for grandstand seating, but those are first-come, first-serve. If there is someone you really want to see, it’s worth it to pay for reserved seating.

Here is the line-up of this year’s headliners and reserved ticket prices:
