California Strawberry Festivals


The California Strawberry Festival is back and we’re looking forward to an exciting, family-friendly weekend of fun and flavor that pays tribute to Ventura County’s robust, world-leading strawberry industry. Our new location is the Ventura County Fairgrounds, 10 West Harbor Blvd.

Now entering its 37th year, the non-profit Festival draws more than 57,000 attendees from across SoCal by serving up a spectacular menu of delectable strawberry delights, arts & crafts booths, live entertainment, gooey contests for berry lovers of all ages, carnival rides, and more. Spaces are on concrete and asphalt, indoor and outdoor. Mandatory set up Friday, May 19, arrive between 9:00am – 5:00pm. Weekend event hours 10:00am – 6:30pm

Guided by an all-volunteer board, the California Strawberry Festival is a 501c3 organization that gives back to the community through four postsecondary scholarship programs and weekend fundraising opportunities for more than 30 local non-profit groups. To date, the Festival has raised more than $5 million to fund these causes.

Spaces are on concrete and asphalt. Up to 150 spaces.
