If you are a foodie, there is a festival you do not want to miss. The California Strawberry Festival it is a foodie paradise, with fair style food and everything strawberry.

We were lucky enough to attend the festival this past weekend and were very impressed not only with the food but also with all the different activities for everyone in the family. It was a blast! Then again, why wouldn’t it be, when there are food booths, thrill rides, shows, music and even strawberry pie eating contest.

Our favorite part of the California Strawberry Festival? The food! We love strawberries, so there is no surprise here that we chose to try the strawberry flavored choices available at the festival, however they have other type of fair like type food available.

Here are some of our favorites

  1. Strawberry Beer
  2. Strawberry Margaritas
  3. Strawberry Funnel Cake
  4. Strawberry Tamale
  5. Strawberry Nachos
  6. Strawberry Pina Colada

Besides amazing food, the festival offers a strawberry land, a great place for kids that includes: rides and attractions to face painting and special character appearances.

At the Strawberry Promenade you can take shelter from the sun under huge tented oasis and enjoy special cooking demonstrations and engaging presentations with all things strawberry.

You can also do some shopping the vendors area. Handmade souvenirs, baked goods and other unique items are available.

When you are ready to leave for the day, do not forget to stop and buy some delicious berries to take home so you can prepare some strawberry foods later on.

The festival was a fun event and we are already making plans to visit again next year.
