Strawberry festival anyone?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Ever been to a strawberry festival? They had one over the weekend here and it was so nice. A band was playing some music from the 80's, so we took our chairs, got ourselves some strawberry shortcake and settled in for a relaxing evening of ice cream, music and people watching...........

I mentioned it yesterday to an online friend, and she said she had never heard of one. Is it just a US thing?

There's one every year somewhere close by, but I can't remember at the moment what city it's held in. I always thought it would be a fun thing to go to but have just never made it out! Glad you had such a good time, perhaps I'll actually go next time I hear about it!!

In my parents' village, there is a lady who holds a Charity Strawberry Tea every summer! It's lovely, as we can wander around her gigantic garden and woods and have a cup of tea, a cream scone and a bowl of fresh strawberries and cream!!

No, Sooz, not just a US thing, though they seem to be less common these days But I certainly remember going to plenty when I was a kid

THANK YOU! I had a feeling that was it, but wasn't sure. Somehow I knew you'd know the answer though!!

I *love* strawberry festivals! We're coming up on strawberry season in Indiana. In one month it will be blueberry season. Yay! My hometown also has the Johnny Appleseed festival in the Fall, where you can have everything apples. Any kind of fruit festival is ok with me

Plant City, FL, just outside of Tampa. The Strawberry Festival is around the first week of March every year. I work about 20 minutes outside of Plant City. Our section of the county even has a day off of school during the Festival.

Yeah, that's the one I've always wanted to go to... just never had the time.

Sounds yummy. I hope they had enough whipped cream.

Down around where I grew up they have an ARMADILLO FESTIVAL! I've never been.

I went there once (many years ago) with a friend and her family. It was so much fun. I would love to go again. It's so neat to have you guys around the area where I used to live. I never would have remembered where it was and it would have bugged me!!

Have any of you ever been to the Chasco (sp?) Fiesta? I used to have so much fun going.

Mmmm... a strawberry festival sounds like the perfect event for a 3rd date! I don't hink we have any here, but there are some pick-your-own fields out of town. Hmmmm... that would make a good date too.
