We went to the Plant City Strawberry Festival in March of 2016, and plan to attend in 2017, too. Our main reason for going that time was to see Gene Watson who was playing there. But this time we'll go back regardless of whether we see someone entertain or not. It's a really fun time. Just make sure you allow... More

Visited Festival yesterday...gorgeous weather to walk around in. Same old/same old carnival food, rides. Saw Branch & Dean country singers..very good. Osmond Country singer and band not good at all in my opinion. Pig races, cow milking, good strawberry shortcake. Better to buy strawberries a few blocks away from Festival for best price/quality. Last year had nice looking strawberries on... More

The shortcake was resonably priced and very good. Found the grounds and buildings to be very clean and we were very Impressed with the selection of free entertainment and the ample seating.

We visited family here during the holidays. This thriving town is chalk full of antique and collectible stores in the downtown area that we really enjoyed digging through with our grand kids. There is a nice little park along the railroad tracks that was festively decorated for the Christmas season. Be sure and visit Parkesdale Market and try the strawberry... More

Came here for the Strawberry Festival. It seemed more like a county fair than anything about strawberries in particular, though there were some amazing chocolate covered strawberries. Other than that, it was normal fair stuff- displays, vendors, farm animals, rides, funnel cakes, etc. Stands outside the festival sell flats of strawberries, but if you drive a bit they’re even cheaper.

We have to stop at the Parksdale Market and get the strawberry shakes. They are awesome. We also stock up on fresh produce for our trip. The prices are low and they offer a lot of fresh produce. A must return.

On my first visit to this fun market I had the strawberry shortcake...LOADED with the freshest strawberries ever and topped with a ton of whipped cream! A fun market and good 'gift shop' - I also took home a pint of the wonderful strawberries. The visit was so good - we went back 3 days later and I enjoyed their... More
