36th Annual Floral City Strawberry Festival

March 4, 2023 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The rich and fertile spring-fed soil of Citrus County is known for producing remarkably delicious fruit. Every year, The Floral City Strawberry Festival celebrates its tasty namesake with a full weekend of fun that has been a local tradition for generations.

The Beer & Wine Garden by the main stage will offer multiple selections of beer and wine, while musical talent entertains everyone.

Children always have so much to do at the Floral City Strawberry Festival. Let the kids blow off some steam at the extensive variety of inflatables and bounce houses, the wildly popular aqua tumble bubbles, and the always challenging rock-climbing wall.

One festival classic, not to be missed, is the tasty pie-eating contests, held both days. All can compete, even the little ones, in age-appropriate categories. Sign-up onsite at the festival both mornings.

Then there is the star of the Floral City Strawberry Festival. Freshly picked strawberries, warm from the Florida sun and supplied by our very own Ferris Farms. Hundreds of flats of strawberries made into delectable strawberry shortcakes for all to enjoy, and plenty of flats of strawberries available to go. Flats will be available next to the Strawberry Shortcake tent, at each gate, and at the shuttle bus parking lot at the County Auditorium ready for you to take home as a sweet reminder of the weekend.
