The Florida Strawberry Festival is an 11-day community event where each year, over 500,000 visitors enjoy the festival's headline entertainment, youth livestock shows, rides, exhibits of commerce and, of course, its strawberries! But this is more than just an 11 day event for locals, it’s a season of celebrating the strawberry harvest of Eastern Hillsborough County! This event definitely takes the number one spot in our top 5 lineup!
This annual Holiday Display at the Florida Strawberry Festival Fairgrounds was founded in 1984 by Dover farmer Lane Wetherington. Christmas Lane carries visitors through live performances by local groups, living nativity scenes, carnival rides for kids and larger-than-life holiday decorations. Over 1.5 million lights are used for decorating, more than 100 Christmas trees, and some as tall as 40 feet! This winter wonderland is a treat for our family.
Over 150 competition barbecue teams turn out for a weekend of good eatin’, good friends, and good tunes to benefit Lakeland-area charities. We don’t like to miss this popular event, the food is amazing and you’ll more than likely make a few friends!
This fun event features daily aerobatic displays, two night airshows & much more. US Navy Blue Angels and over 500 exhibitors make this a neat day for the whole family!
Voted one of the top Vintage Markets in the country, this is a great place to shop & find some treasures!
