The California Strawberry Festival

It’s that time of year in California.  Strawberries are a ripe dusty rose and so sweet that they almost taste like candy.  There are as many varieties of strawberries in Southern California as there are types of sunscreen, and people soon strawberrydiscover their favorites.  If you aren’t sure what your favorite is, a quick trip to the local farmer’s market will give you a wide variety to taste from, but if you really want to experience the full strawberry experience it is time to head out to the Strawberry Festival. 

The month of May boasts many strawberry festivals in Southern California but there is one that is undoubted queen of the Strawberry Festivals and that is the California Strawberry Festival in Oxnard.  Started in 1984 this festival is ranks as one of the top Festivals in the country.  There is something for everyone at the festival, live entertainment, interactive exhibits, arts and crafts, award-winning attractions and every delectable food imaginable all featuring fresh strawberries!  There is even a Strawberryland for children, that offers free rides, puppet shows and much more.

As if the taste of the sweet berries were not enough to draw you to the festival, The California Strawberry Festival is also a major fund raiser for local charities with over $3 million dollars raised to date.

The 2009 festival will be held on May 16 and 17th in the beautiful Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard.  For more information on this festival  visit,  I’m Carol Wolfe and nobody does it better.
