The much loved Florida Strawberry Festival will take place early next year, from February 29 - March 10, 2024, and now we know the theme.

Are you ready for an encounter like no other? Festival organisers have announce that the annual theme of the 2024 will be Out Of This World, with over 500,000 visitors will make the trip out to Plant City from near and far

“The sky’s the limit,” commented Florida Strawberry Festival President Kyle Robinson. “Our board of directors, staff and maintenance crew have been hard at work this summer planning and preparing an out of this world’ experience for all our guests. We look forward to welcoming visitors from far and wide to BerryFest24!”

A new theme is created each year for the popular festival to give guests a glimpse of the experience they will have at the event, as well as unify vendors, FFA chapters, organizations, corporate partners and exhibitors, who create parade floats and displays.

“The Festival’s atmosphere is like no other,” said Robinson. “Seeing families gather, volunteers serving and the Plant City community coming together year after year is extraordinary. There’s no place on Earth quite like the Florida Strawberry Festival!”
