The 34th Annual California Strawberry Festival kicks off Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21, 2017 on the newly expanded acreage at Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard.

Ranked nationwide among the top outdoor Festivals, the fruity fete boasts lip-smacking strawberries every way imaginable with live concerts on multiple stages, more than 200 Fine Arts & Crafts booths.

The Strawberry Promenade with celebrity cooking demonstrations, Strawberryland For Kids with rides and attractions, gooey contests, and more. Strawberry pizza alongside a strawberry beer, strawberry nachos, strawberry funnel cake, strawberry crepes, chocolate dipped strawberries, fried strawberries, and strawberry smoothies are just a sampling of the delicacies at the festival.

There will be selections from 50 food booths, you'll also be able to “build you own” strawberry shortcake tent to pile on the sweetness.  Best of all, indulging is guilt free..well almost.  With each bite of berry bliss from the non-profit food booths, 100% of sales support their causes. 

“This year we’re enhancing the Festival experience with a 50% expansion of the Festival grounds,” says California Strawberry Festival Chairperson Kim Gibas. “As volunteers, we work year round to produce a first class event. We’re excited because the added acreage and new footprint gives us the opportunity to double the fun.”
