What is the Florida Strawberry Festival?

It’s basically a State Fair devoted to strawberries! This event is a celebration of that crop that Plant City and Eastern Hillsborough County grow so well. Strawberry’s from our local groves are famous throughout the south as making premium deserts, snacks and specialty dishes. They mean a great deal our local economy and form the back bone of Tampa area agriculture.
