It’s Bradford County Strawberry Festival time once again and this year’s event seems primed to be better than ever with vendors, rides, live entertainment, and – of course! – strawberries, strawberries, strawberries! April 6th and 7th, 2019 in Starke, FL.
The Bradford County Strawberry Festival has enlivened Starke every spring, for the last 21 years. The popular event celebrates Bradford County’s annual strawberry harvest with two-days of food and fun in the sun.
Of course, there will be strawberries – and Bradford County strawberries are some of the best around. Don’t believe me? Come and find out for yourself! The festival offers fresh strawberries, strawberry ice cream, strawberry smoothies, and Berrylicious strawberry shortcake.
Food at the festival isn’t restricted to strawberries, however. You’ll also see food carts offering BBQ, fresh seafood, sandwiches, salads, hamburgers, hot dogs, and so much more.
Vendors, performers, and lots of attractions, like carnival rides, classic cars, and laser tag, make the festival a must-attend. Artisans will be selling all manner of creations, and don’t forget the live entertainment!
Bradford County Strawberry Festival 2019 Entertainment Schedule
A Change of Venue for 2019
Previous festivals have transformed historic, downtown Starke into a merry festival grounds. This year, due to road construction, the Strawberry Festival has been moved to the Bradford County Fairgrounds. The festival will be held here for the next few years, at least, and the move is looking like a real boon.
It provides more space for vendors, more parking for attendees, and everyone will be able to hear the entertainment. It also means no closed down streets in downtown Starke (unless for construction, of course) and more expansion space for future strawberry festivals!
