Florida Strawberry Festival – North of Jupiter

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Friday, March 4th, 2022 at 5:31pm.

The Florida Strawberry Festival is officially back. The 11-day event brings in tens of thousands of people. The idea behind the Florida Strawberry Festival is the preservation of this heritage. Central to its focus, the festival continues to preserve and enhance the agricultural and historical legacy of the Florida strawberry. Steeped in tradition, the Florida Strawberry Festival is alive with a volunteer spirit, uniting people from all parts of Plant City and the surrounding area. The Strawberry Festival is a bit of a drive from the north end of Palm Beach County. The distance from Jupiter to Plant City is 145 miles.

The event began back in 1930 when members of the newly organized Plant City Lions Club devised the idea of an event to celebrate the bountiful harvest of strawberries. In 1948, the American Legion Post #26 helped get the Florida Strawberry Festival reactivated following a six-year hiatus during and immediately following World War II.

As in the past, you will always find plenty of strawberries, strawberry shortcakes, rides, and more. This year, 2022, you can attend concerts as well. This year the event is loaded with headline acts including Nelly, Beach Boys, Boyz 2 Men, Jake Owen, and Sam Hunt to name a few.
