Based in Plant City, FL, the Florida Strawberry Festival, runs Thursday, February 27, 2014 through Sunday, March 9, 2014. The Florida Strawberry Festival has been a community staple since 1948, and is noted to be one of the Top 40 Fairs in North America. The 11 day festival features family-fun activities including traditional fair rides, food, performances by some big name bands – and of course, strawberries!
We love the Florida Strawberry Festival because it features world-class entertainment while preserving its small-town community roots. At the heart of the Florida Strawberry Festival is the love of agriculture and harvest, and as Florida’s oldest strawberry grower, this is a legacy we are proud to support.
The Florida Strawberry Festival features some of the hottest names in music, and we are excited to sponsor this particular area of the festival. Two shows appear on the Wish Farms Soundstage per day with showtimes everyday at 3:30pm and 7:30pm. The following acts will be showcased in the 2014 Florida Strawberry Festival Concert Series:

Visit the Wish Farms strawberry stand directly outside the main gate of the Festival (Gate 1) on the corner of Oak Avenue and Woodrow Wilson and pick up some fresh Florida strawberries to take home with you! We have designed a specialty pack for the 2014 festival. It proudly displays the Fresh From Florida logo and has the look and feel of an authentic farm stand. It’s one of a kind! With every purchase of Wish Farms strawberries you receive a reusable shopping tote.
Also available at our Wish Farms strawberry stand is our Misty the Garden Pixie children’s book. The book was written by Therese Wishnatzki, our owner Gary Wishnatzki’s wife, in honor of their first grandchild. The story promotes healthy eating and shares adventures of Misty on the farm. You can purchase your copy of the book at the Festival or online by clicking here.
The Wish Farms Pixie Patrol will be in full force greeting guests and giving away prizes. Our Pixie Patrol will be blogging and posting videos & backstage insights throughout the Festival. Be sure to follow Wish Farms on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram for all the latest on the 2014 Florida Strawberry Festival!
