The Pasadena Strawberry Festival is this weekend! This three day event is held every year on the third weekend in May. It is a time to celebrate when Pasadena, Texas was known as “THE STRAWBERRY CAPITAL OF THE SOUTH!”
Being known as “The Strawberry Capital of the South” presents a very different perception than that of todays’ petrochemical industry.
What began as a one-time celebration on a high school football practice field has become one of the largest and popular annual events in the Pasadena area.
The festival draws over 50,000 in attendance and utilizes the entire 106 acres Pasadena Convention Center and municipal fairgrounds complex.
Come and enjoy the wide variety of both indoor and outdoor activities and attractions. Some of the entertainment offered are eating a piece of the “World’s Largest Strawberry Shortcake”, to an awesome barbecue cookoff, helicopter rides, and continuous musical entertainment. Be sure to check out the carnival, fabulous shopping from a variety of vendors, great food options, and specialty acts.
The event provides a fun-filled weekend of activities for the whole family to enjoy!
Come out and get you a piece of the World’s Largest Strawberry Shortcake!
