One of the very best things about living in Southern California is the availability of delicious fresh fruits… especially Strawberries! Strawberry pie, strawberry sundae, strawberries in salads, strawberry jam, and of course, biting into a fresh juicy sweet strawberry.
The 31st Annual California Strawberry Festival May 17 & 18th in Oxnard is coming up with all day fun for the whole family. The celebration ranks among the top outdoor Festivals in the nation. Best of all, it’s non-profit with proceeds benefitting more than 40 southland charities. Over the past three decades more than $4 million has been generated to impact lives.
Hours are 10:00am to 6:30pm.
California Strawberry Festival ingredients for a memorable outing include: 50 food booths, concerts on two stages, 250 arts & crafts booths, gooey contests, celebrity cooking demonstrations, and “Strawberryland For Kids” with rides and attractions, including visits with the lovable Strawberry Shortcake character.
This year’s concert headliners are two-time Grammy-award winners “The Maraichi Divas,” and international stars “The Young Dubliners,” among others.
Tickets start at $5.
Not only is the California Strawberry Festival May 17, 18 in Oxnard a blast for families, now there’s a Berry Best Dressed Baby Contest for kids with $5,000+ in prizes – including a date night for parents.
Festive in their berry best strawberry attire, contestants up to four years of age are invited to parade across a tented stage before a panel of judges (parents can assist). Ripe for fun and the perfect photo opportunity, it makes a special day of attending the Festival celebration that serves up delicious fun while fundraising for So Cal charities.
