The 30th Annual California Strawberry Festival!

Posted by on April 23, 2013

I love strawberries, and now that I am in California I love the fact that they’re grown so close.  When strawberry season comes around not only are the prices super cheap on strawberries, but I also have the opportunity to go strawberry picking if I wanted to.

With that being said this post is not a sponsored post, however, one reader will have a chance to win a family four pack of tickets to the California Strawberry festival.

This year the California Strawberry Festival is taking place May 18th and 19th in Oxnard, California at the strawberry meadows of college park.  There are nearby shuttle stations that will drop you off and pick you up at the Strawberry Festival.

Last year, if you remember when I went, was my first time at the festival and I had so much fun.  From strawberry infused wine to strawberry nachos to strawberry shortcake there was a little something for everyone.

During the festival you will be able to watch the final two contestants of the Berry Blast recipe contest.  The winner will win a family vacation getaway.  And it was so much fun watching last year as they created their recipes.  The best part was getting to try them afterwards.

And for those that love rides, have no fear, there are plenty to take part in while there:

    I haven’t been in FOREVER!!! We used to go when I was little and I remember this strawberry scented magic dough. it was hard, and you’d try to pick it up, then it’d just melt away. I learned later it was a mix of water & cornstarch. so cool!
