The belle of all things “berrylicious,” the California Strawberry Festival May 16 & 17 in Oxnard celebrates 32 years of serving up all day fun with delicious eats, entertainment and fine arts.

Featuring 50+ food booths, contests like the tart toss and shortcake build off, celebrity chef demonstrations, Strawberryland For Kids with rides, hundreds of Fine Arts & Crafts, and more, the celebration ranks among the nation’s top outdoor Festivals. Hours are 10:00am to 6:30pm. The two-time Grammy-award winning “Maraichi Divas” and “Dirty Rice” headline the non-stop concerts on multiple stages.

Ever tasted strawberry beer? Or perhaps the strawberry nachos are more you style. Oh, did we mention strawberry funnel cake, strawberry crepes, chocolate dipped strawberries, deep-fried strawberries, the “build your own” strawberry shortcake tent, or even strawberry popcorn?

Indulge guilt free, because with each bite the non-profit food booths reap 100% of sales for their causes. The formula has proven to be a fruitful enterprise. Over the past three decades more than $4.5 million dollars has benefited 20+ southland charities.
